Youth Growth Stock Trust

The Youth Growth Stock Grant was established in 1992, due to the late Robert Short’s concern for the well-being of the community’s youth.  United Way of Cumberland County is the trust administrator. Each year, grants are awarded to local programs, initiatives, schools and scholarships that specifically benefit Cumberland County youth

A panel of qualified trustees oversees investments of the trust. UWCC's Board of Directors created a committee to meet annually to review and make recommendations for funding. In April of each year, the UWCC Board of Directors votes on these recommendations.

Each year, dozens of grants are awarded with the income from the trust, creating a lasting legacy for Mr. Short.  Interested public schools and 501(c)3 nonprofits may apply through the links below.
