The Seward Community Foundation hosted a gathering of local nonprofit organizations on Tuesday, January 17th at the Breeze Inn to announce the amount of funds that they have to grant in 2017. The total available this year is $144,681! Of this total, $24,000 has been designated for mini grants. Mini grants up to $1,000 may be applied for throughout the year. Applications for both types of grants are available online on the Foundation’s website.
SCF’s annual grant cycle is open January 1 – March 1, 2017 (5:00pm). Most annual grants range from $2,000 to $10,000, but larger awards may be considered with advance approval from the board. For more information and to access the online application, please visit www.sewardcf.org, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We strongly encourage nonprofit representatives to contact SCF Advisory Board members if they have questions.
In 2016, the Foundation awarded over $90,000 to local organizations that benefit Seward and Moose Pass. The Seward Community Foundation is proud to be able to award even more grants in 2017. Thank you to all of those who have donated to your community foundation. Your dollars continue to give each year and your donations stay in our community.
