We received 35 LOIs in our grant cycle. The board is meeting on 2/14/13 to discuss LOIs as a group. You will hear back from us no later than one week after the board meets. If you have questions please feel free to contact us at anytime.
The grant focuses for 2013 are updated on our website. Please look carefully at our deadlines as they may have varied from last year. We also published a list of our 2012 grant awards on our website.
The Board of Directors for the Foundation met on Friday and approved a total of $61,000 of grants. If you submitted a grant proposal to us, you will hear from us soon! Stay tuned. We will be updating our website with our focuses for Fall 2013 grant cycle soon.
Our deadline has passed and we received a record number of LOIs. We received almost twice as many LOIs in comparison to previous years so the board has a lot of work and difficult decisions ahead of them. We're expecting the board to meet sometime in July to finalize which applications they will invite to submit full grant proposals so stay tuned.
Our board of directors met yesterday and approved ten grants in the total amount of $47,140. Spring 2012 approved grants list will be updated on our website shortly. Grant agreements are in the mail. We also finalized our Spring 2013 grant focuses so please be sure to check our website for details. We appreciate the time that each of the applicants gave us for site visits so that we could learn more about their work. A big thank you to our Volunteer Program Officers, Patricia and Susan, for their hard work and dedication.
Just a reminder that June 1st is our deadline for Letters of Interest for our Fall grant cycle. Our Fall grant cycle is dedicated to making awards in the Environment and Health & Human Services categories. Please see "Apply for a Grant" for our specific focuses in each of those categories. And do let us know if you have any questions.
Site visits are complete and the board is spending the next few weeks reading grant proposals. The board is scheduled to meet on June 5th to award grants in our Spring grant cycle. Stay tuned.
Just a quick note to let all of you know that our board reviewed the LOIs for our Spring 2012 grant cycle and I'll be getting back to all applicants before the end of next week with instructions on next steps. As typical, we received many more LOIs than we can invite to submit grant proposals. It is wonderful to see all of the great work that our nonprofits are doing for the community!
Wanted to share the news with you that the board agreed to remove the requirement to send hardcopies of the LOIs and grant proposals. Please use the electronic submission tools on our website to submit your applications, etc.
Our Spring grant cycle is closed. We are no longer accepting LOIs in the areas of Areas of Arts & Culture and Education. Our board is meeting in late February to discuss all of the LOIs in these two areas then we'll be getting back to you with further instructions. Our Spring grants will be made in the June 2012 timeframe so you may not have heard anything back from us.
Our Fall grant cycle is open. We are accepting LOIs in the areas of Environment and Health & Human Services. So, check out Current Grant Focuses on our website.
Remember, we change our focuses regularly and post them about one year in advance of a particular grant cycle. Check our website a couple times per year.
