Our board of directors met last week to discuss their reviews of all 46 letters of interest. They invited 17 organizations to submit grant proposals. Our volunteer Program Officers will be spending one hour with each of these 17 organizations over the phone to discuss their requests in more detail and to get to know the organizations better prior to our November 6th board meeting where we will approve grants. At that board meeting, we will also discuss and finalize our focuses for the Fall 2015 grant cycle.
We received a total of 46 Letters of Interest: 10 in the category of Environment and 36 in the category of Health & Human Services. The board is scheduled to meet on August 7th to discuss their review of the LOIs and to decide which organizations to invite to submit grant proposals.
The Board of Directors met and approved a total of 9 grants. Three grants were awarded in the Arts & Culture category and five grants were awarded in the Education category. Awards are all posted on our website as FYI.
Our board meeting is confirmed for May 8th at which time they will make their grant funding decisions for this grant cycle. We have a total of 15 grant requests under consideration.
Wishing everyone a happy holidays and thank you to everyone for the great work in 2013. Just a reminder that our deadline for LOIs is Tuesday, January 7th, 2014.

While updating some pages last night, I accidentally broke the website. I'm still fixing links, etc. so if you find anything that doesn't work, please let me know.
Thanks for your patience,
The board met on May 14th and approved ten grants total in the Arts & Culture and Education categories. I'll update the website soon with a list of grant recipients. All grantees should have received their checks by now. In addition, our Fall 2013 LOI deadline was a couple of days ago. We received over 35 LOIs in total for the Environment and Health & Human Services categories. The board is meeting in mid-July to discuss their LOI reviews and we'll get back to all applicants shortly thereafter. Enjoy your summer!
