2017 Great Grant Giveaway
If you haven't heard of the Foundation's Annual Meeting, the Great Grant Giveaway, you won't want to miss it!
The Foundation selects nonprofits to present their good work during the event. A check for $500 sits on every table, ready to be awarded to one of the nonprofits. This year, we have selected great Partnerships in our city.
Grant proposals are not accepted for Great Grant Giveaway recipients. Recipients are selected by Foundation staff. Through the course of our annual work, we receive nearly 100 Letters of Intent and Grant Proposals. In addition to being screened for potential Competitive and Donor-Advised Grants, all are reviewed through the lens of potential Great Grant Giveaway participants. Additionally, all Foundation staff are extremely active in the community participating almost daily in convening’s, events and other activities sponsored by local nonprofits. We are continually monitoring this work for consideration in our annual event.
Eventually, all organizations are considered as we piece together the puzzle that becomes the Great Grant Giveaway, most importantly reaching all of the fields-of-interest, population segments and priorities of the Foundation and its donors.
