This year was very competitive for our applicants. We realized that we needed more money to try to meet the community's need so we dipped into our rainy day fund reserve to help meet the demand. Even so, several very good proposals did not get grant awards because we lacked sufficient funds.
2018 grant applications are now closed
WE RECEIVED 15 PROPOSALS FROM OUR PARTNERS TO FUND PROJECTS IN OUR COMMUNITY!
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU THAT APPLIED.
The total amount of money requested was $120,870. Our budgeted amount to cover these grants was $46,000. With help from our rainy day reserve fund we awarded a total of $61,340.
We will continue to support microgrants. Click Micro Grants for more information.
We will continue to support Sponsorships, please sent request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Both Micro Grants and Sponsorships are for amounts up to $1,000.

Our endowment is currently a little over $1 million, which means our annual grant budget is roughly $50,000. We're an all-volunteer organization, which is why we're able to make the most of the annual distribution from our endowment.
