Spring is the time for the presentations of recommended grants applications—followed by voting. This year, we received 83 applications, which were evaluated by 115 readers, serving on 17 teams. Forty-eight applicants received site visits. The teams then recommended 35 applicants for consideration for one-year funding. Thank you to all team leaders and grant readers for your hard work!
On Wednesday, April 11, grant readers gave 3-minute speeches to present each of the 35 one-year potential grantees. All Circle members were invited to attend the meeting. Those who attended were eligible to vote for the one-year grant recipients.
The top vote getters from the one-year voting who requested consideration for two-year funding are being invited to send representatives to the Wednesday, May 9 Full Circle meeting. Each of the representatives will speak about the way in which their organization would use a $50,000 grant to further their work.
The invitation to attend the May 9 Full Circle meeting was emailed to all Circle members. Those who attend the entire meeting will be eligible to vote for the two-year grant recipients. If you wish to attend the May 9 meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to all Circle members who joined us on April 11 and voted for the recipients of the one-year grants. Please join us again on May 9 to learn about the two-year grant applicants and decide who will receive this funding.
