Recent Past Grant Cycle:
January 15, 2021: Grant Applications Opened. 
February 28, 2021: Deadline for Grant Applications & Start of Review Process.

End of March 2021: Final Decisions made on grant approval & funded projects notified.

The trustees had many hard decisions to make for this past grant cycle. Our most fervent wish is that we had more funds - there were so many projects that we wished we could fund! The recipients of the grants for this grant cycle have now been contacted and funds dispersed. If your organization applied for a grant in this grant cycle and were not contacted, then we regret that your project was not funded. Please consider this a reflection of the particularly intense competition for the funds during this grant cycle rather than a reflection of the quality of your project. We are amazed and humbled by the good work that you do and only wish we could do more.
