We operate our community grants program on a biannual cycle. Our deadlines for accepting grant applications to be considered are the first business days of March and October. Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on those days.
Most decisions are made on this cycle, although some major decisions may be deferred or considered at the Grants Committee's discretion.
The steps of our review process are as follows:
When a grant is awarded, the organization will receive a letter of notification stating:
All reporting requirements are included with the letter of notification. A schedule for reporting will be agreed upon for each grant. We expect to receive some report in a timely manner following upon the award. The grants committee will monitor the organization's compliance, and failure to submit timely reports may affect future funding requests.
