Greater Polson Community Foundation announces new grant funding cycle

From Greater Polson Community Foundation

POLSON — The GPCF invites 2018 grant applications. The 2018 grant application deadline is Friday, April 27. Grant applications will be accepted from non-profit organizations with a 501c(3) status in the Greater Polson area.

Grants from the Greater Polson Community Foundation can make a significant difference. A total of $473,000 has been contributed to meet needs in our community since grants were first awarded in 2009. Grants are funded annually by the earning’s from the foundation’s growing permanent endowment and other available GPCF funds. Past grant awards have supported a variety of youth and community projects. GPCF President Toni Young says, “Our grant funding support to our community non-profits and their projects is a highlight of our year”.

The Committee is looking for how well the prospective project matches the mission and values of the GPCF as well as addressing critical needs that strengthen our community. As you prepare your application, think about how your project can enhance and improve the lives of the people who live here.

The GPCF is planning two Grant Application Workshops at the GPCF offices on March 8 or March 15 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Either of these workshop sessions, are available for the first twelve participants to register and pay $5 (light lunch included) and will walk an applicant through the basic grant application process which is beneficial to non-profits writing grants or foundation requests for funding.

GPCF will accept applications for pre-screen completeness until April 13 and complete applications must be postmarked no later than Friday, April 27. The complete 2018 Grant Application is available to download online by clicking here where you will also find a list of previous GPCF grant recipients. If you have questions or would like to register, please contact Jennifer at the GPCF office at (406) 883-4723.
