"Nourishing all of Greenbelt's Neighborhoods"

Greenbelt Community Foundation

Virtual Workshop March 31

The free Grant Writing Workshop Tuesday, March 31 at 7:30 will be a virtual workshop using the Zoom platform. During the workshop, the speaker will focus on writing a successful grant application  for projects or programs serving Greenbelt. The final application submission deadline is midnight April 15, 2020.

GCF now funds both new and existing projects and programs as well as all organizations with an IRS tax exempt status, not just those with a 501(c)(3) status.

Please come with draft of your application or, at minimum, a project/program description with measurable outcomes and a draft budget.

Bill Duncan facilitates the GCF Grant Writing Workshop.

Bill Duncan, a founding GCF board member, leads the overview and discussion at the grant writing workshop.

NEW CRITERIA OPENS GRANT AWARDS TO MORE ORGANIZATIONS

     When the Greenbelt Community Foundation became an independent tax-exempt organization, it expanded the tax-exemption criteria for organizations applying for grants. Now all organizations with any IRS tax-exemption is eligible to apply.
     This change enables schools, churches and other organizations to apply directly instead of seeking a fiscal sponsor with the specific 501(c)(3) category. For example, teacher and other educators can apply directly rather than submit a proposal through the PTSA.
     Another change in our criteria is that GCF funds existing programs. For example, the county does not provide enough funding for all the children eligible for the free lunch program. GCF may be able to fill that gap for one year. Or, perhaps a reading program doesn’t have enough funds to buy all the books it needs.
     April 15, 2020 at midnight is the next deadline for proposals. Please share with your organizations this new criteria.
