The Funders' Collaborative on Youth Organizing

Founded in 2000, the Funders’ Collaborative on Youth Organizing (FCYO) is a dynamic collective of social justice funders and youth organizing practitioners dedicated to advancing youth organizing as a strategy for youth development and social change. FCYO is a project of and fiscally sponsored by Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice.
