District Foundation Grant applications are reviewed by the District Grant Screening Committee.  Under the leadership of District Grant Chair John Atwood, the committee is comprised of nine Club Foundation chairs from throughout the district.  They met in June to review club applications for this year's Community and Springboard Grants.  Their recommendations were forwarded on to the District Foundation Committee.

The Foundation Committee made a few modifications, with the result that six Community Grants and three Springboard Grants were approved and funded.  Clubs are being notified of the results this week, and a summary of funded projects will be posted in next week's bulletin.

Not all of our available dollars were allocated in the initial funding cycle, so the Foundation Committee is reopening the window for grant applications, with a new deadline of September 1.


We still have $7300 available for either District or Springboard Grants.  Any club that meets general qualifying standards – including those clubs whose most recent applications were approved – may apply.  This is a wonderful opportunity to put on those thinking caps and think about trying something new!  Application forms and grant criteria are on the district website.

 Remember: September 1!  Questions?  Contact John Atwood, atwood@midcoast.com.
