The Burton Critical Needs and Opportunity Fund Toolkit

Last updated Apr, 20 2022

This year, JBAY is expanding the Burton Book Fund to pay expenses related to youths’ critical needs and opportunities.

Welcome to the Burton Critical Needs and Opportunity Fund!

JBAY will disburse funding to participating organizations in two rounds. Each time an organization disburses funds to a youth, this form must be filled out within 48 hours. Failure to complete the form will result in organizations not receiving their second disbursement and/or not participating in the program in future years.

There is no per youth spending limit. Organizational representatives should use their knowledge of the youth’s specific circumstance and their professional judgement when awarding youth funds.

If you are a youth living in CA between the ages of 16 and 26, who has experienced homelessness, or the foster care system and need help, please contact one of the participating organzations directly to apply.
