Joan Burchell Fund Now Accepting Grant Proposals

0 Comment

Our Joan Burchell Fund is requesting grant proposals for its annual funding cycle. The deadline for applying is May 4, 2018.  Grants will be awarded in July.  The Burchell Fund supports projects ranging from arts to social services, health care and the environment.  Over $70,000 has been granted through this fund since its inception in 2010.

The purpose of the Joan Burchell Fund is to provide charitable grants as the Foundation board determines are most needed. Grants will be made within the broad range of nonprofit agencies and not limited to a single focus or exclusively to the interests of a particular constituency. In this grant cycle the total available for granting is $10,000 and proposals will be accepted for any amount up to that total. The range of grants in the past has been $650 to $4,000.  A link to the application guidelines and list of former recipients can be found here:  Joan Burchell Fund.
