We began fundraising and providing grants in 2006 and have distributed over $1 million to local organizations. As a result, programs have been created and expanded and access to support has increased for our families. We will continue to fuel growth and opportunity through the funding of community grants.
In addition, organizations who have received funding from the previous year's grant request, MUST complete and email all of their required documentation by May 1st to be considered for current year's funding cycle.
Funding requests must be emailed to Catina Harding by 5pm, August 11th. Requests will be reviewed by a committee and your organization will be notified if your proposal has been selected as one of the grants we will be fundraising to support. The committee will consider several areas including but not limited to: the need in the community, organization history of service, and potential for growth and sustainability. A matrix weighing several of these areas will be used as one of the evaluation tools.
Each organization selected will have the opportunity to create their own fundraising page to email to their supporters, post on social media, or add to their organization webpage. All funds your organization raises through this fundraising page will go directly to your request!
The more active your organization is in getting the word out and getting your supporters involved - the more you can raise. Potentially even above and beyond your initial request!
