Our grant application cycle is now closed. Applications will be reviewed on February 12, 2019 and two finalists selected for a short interview with our trustees. Grant money will be awarded in mid-March.
Please note: The chapter will ONLY consider those projects that can be fully funded with the $1,000 grant. If you are working with a larger budget, think of a specific, creative stand-alone element that the $1,000 can fully fund. Keep this in mind when you provide a detailed budget and timeline for your project. Thank you.
WHAT WE DON'T FUND
PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING. It's very important as we will not consider grant applications for:
~TRAVEL EXPENSES or business start up costs
~ Living expenses or purchases for personal use, stipends, car or home repairs, studio rental, etc.
~ Projects that are not based in Santa Fe. We invest locally.
~ Projects that do not provide a proposed budget and a timeline.
WHAT WE DO FUND
Our chapter is interested in funding projects with micro-grants of $1,000 that will enhance and impact Santa Fe in a positive, creative way. Projects can include efforts in a wide range of areas including science, technology, arts, social good, and much more. We like projects that are visible and have a clear community benefit. Your project should make an impact by helping others or creating a better environment for them.
We are looking for projects that:
~ Are actionable and achievable
~ Benefit Santa Fe
~ Can be completed within a reasonable time frame
~ Can be fully funded with the $1,000 grant
~ Are AWESOME!
Keep these guidelines in mind, and then surprise and delight us with your idea of how to make Santa Fe a better place to live, work, and play. Apply!
