We have reached the mid-point of our grant cycle.
Grant Review Committees (GRCs) have finished the review of 26 full grant applications. Twelve nonprofits have been selected as possible site visit candidates. These will be forwarded to the Financial Review Committee (FRC) for vetting. Once the FRC has completed their work to assess the overall financial stability and sustainability of each nonprofit, site visits will begin in March.
Many GRC members believe site visits are one of the most educational and rewarding aspects of our grant cycle. It is a wonderful opportunity to personally engage staff and gain a better understanding of the nonprofit's mission, grant project, and the underserved communities we would support.
Following the site visits, each GRC will come together and determine which nonprofit they will put forth for consideration as an Impact Grant recipient at the May awards dinner.
