If you are a student with a great idea about how to make a difference or an adult who knows of a student who has a great idea, this grant is for you.

Painting for a Purpose is a local philanthropic organization that funds youth-led initiatives that make a difference in the community. Painting For A Purpose brings people together to create hand painted “whimsical” art, hosts an annual auction to sell the art and uses the proceeds to fund youth led service learning grants for students in the Portland Public Schools. The group’s 2016 auction, the theme of which is Fabulous Fish and Beautiful Bowls, will be held on Thursday, Nov. 3.
