A question has been asked regarding amount requested..

Regarding how much should be requested within the grant proposal, the grant request should be between $20,000 and $50,000. The request should be based on budget size, program/project requirements, history etc. Ultimately, the Trust will determine the final grant amount based on the total distribution of funds allocated to the program.

  1. Alex is correct about the requested amount. As a guide, it may be helpful to note that the total allocation is $1 million per year; however, that will not be simply divided among 31 grantees. Some very small groups should expect to receive a grant in the $20,000 - $25,000 range in the first year. The size of your organization is not the only factor, though. A large organization with a proposal that does not demonstrate that they "get it", may also get a grant in the smaller range.

    Remember that one criteria will be your ability to outline SMART outcomes that will address your most critical lagging areas.
