Fund your projects and ideas and make them come to life with the City of Palo Alto's Think Fund! Get money for your idea, as well as mentorship and support in order to make your vision a reality. No idea is too big or too small. If you're in high school and have an idea for a short-term or long-term project, meet with the Teen Program Specialist to discuss how you can transform your blueprint into a footprint!
The mission for the use of the fund is to support teen developed and implemented programs.
In 2001 the City Council voted to lease out property formerly known as the Bryant Street Teen Center with the stipulation that 75% of the net rental revenues fund youth and teen programs. That fund, known as the Bryant Street Garage Fund (now Think Fund), is now being invested back into the teen population by offering “mini grants” to teens interested in creating new programs, activities, and/or events in the community.
