Thus we expect proposals to feature either a new project or program that reflects a promising new approach in the field or in the underlying strategy and processes that the organization itself has used in the past, or expansion of an existing, proven project/program that will have a high impact and transformative effect on the organization and the community it serves.
Because we are an all-volunteer organization, we do not provide this service. However, we do host several workshops open to the public before the grant deadline in order to walk prospective applicants through the application and the process.
Applications may be mailed or emailed to us. If emailing, please put all documents in PDF format.
