2020 Grant Cycle Compressed & Simplified
Given this difficult and uncertain time for all our communities given the coronavirus, the P&G Alumni Foundation is compressing and simplifying the 2020 grant cycle. We are sensitive to the many non-profits experiencing service disruptions and staffing issues that would likely affect their ability to fully participate in this year’s grant process if it were to be held on our normal schedule. Grant cycle will now open on August 1, 2020.

Featured Videos and Webinars
Do you remember Y2K and the dreaded Millenium Bug? Why do a lot of us fear new technology? We fear what we don't understand because we lose control and that's why in a world where the only constant is change it is important to rewire our mindset. Review Luigi Matrone’s presentation from the last Alumni Global Conference.
