Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2015 application process! We received over twice as many applications as last year – 50! – setting a new record for our foundation. Thanks for your willingness to try out our new online format, give feedback, and help us refine our grant making process. I am now reviewing these applications and as always it is such a pleasure to read about all the amazing work being done in family members’ communities. The grant committee will then have the very difficult task of considering each project and making a final recommendation to our board.
We appreciate your patience as we move forward with the next phase of our grant cycle and prepare for our annual meeting in July. All applicants will be notified of the board’s decision by August.
Again, thank you for your overwhelming response! We are indebted to everyone who applied – we could not exist without organizations who partner with us for the benefit of our communities.
