Youth Service Fund (YSF)

The YSF is money that is raised by youth for youth. Funds are raised through local churches, then are given away through grants administered by the CCYM.

Of the funds given, 70% is given back within the Western North Carolina Conference. The remaining 30% is donated to the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA), and this amount is used to fund projects that a team of youth from around the world select. Most importantly, the projects supported are designed and led by youth, for the benefit of their peers. (Book of Discipline 2012, ¶649. 3. i-k; ¶1208)

The grant application is available online. Click here for instructions on how to use the eGrant platform.

Note: Due to Covid cancelling our in-person conference youth events, our Youth Service Fund is low on funds. If your youth group or church is interested in doing a fundraiser to support YSF, contact Shannon at If you are in need of grant funds, message Shannon at
