Our dedicated fundraising campaign season may be over but that doesn’t mean the work stops! We dive right into our next step--The Community Investment process. The application process opened on February 15. The deadline to submit will come fast on April 1 at 4:00 p.m. Applications for program funding are then reviewed by community volunteers to assess impact and ensure that funds are being well invested. Recommendations are reviewed and approved by our Board of Directors at their June meeting. Funding, if awarded, begins in July along with our new fiscal year!
In the meantime, grant workshops began this week and are being facilitated this year via Zoom by yours truly. Just like with everything, there are things that stay the same but we continue to add new content and resources to make these workshops valuable for programs that intend to apply.
