How to Apply

Please Note:
No grant requests are being accepted at this time.

Please provide the following information in an easily readable font size:

  • Narrative, not to exceed three pages. Clearly describe the strategies your project or organization will use to address community issues — who’s doing what, and why. If you’re emulating a successful model from else-where, explain why that approach was selected. If innovative, explain your approach. Describe the role of your organization in your community. Discuss how you are connected to other community efforts, as well as your group’s unique role. Explain the general work-plan for the one-year grant period, and how you will evaluate the success/effectiveness of your project. (We recognize this is a challenge in three pages — in short, we want to read succinct information about who you are, why you are conducting your project, and how you’ll get there.) 
  • Budget summary. For general operating support, submit an organizational budget (actual & projected sources of income). If you are requesting project support, explain the income/expenses of both the project and the larger organization. (Please do not send large audited financial statements.) 
  • IRS 501(c)(3) notification letter and Optional additional information: newsletters, press coverage, endorsements or testimonials from past project participants.
