The Community Foundation of the Dan River Region is currently accepting applications for grants from The Autism Education Fund. The deadline for this grant cycle is Monday, March 4, 2013.
The Autism Education Fund was established in 2012 through the fundraising efforts of the 2012 Dan River Autism Awareness 5k. The Autism Education Fund is an endowed fund managed by the Community Foundation of the Dan River Region. The interest generated by the fund principal will be distributed as grants by the Community Foundation. For the current grant cycle, approximately $1,200 is available to be distributed as grants. (With the fundraising efforts of the 2013 Dan River Autism Awareness 5k, we hope to increase the fund principal, and in turn, increase the amount available to be distributed as grants in future grant cycles.)
The purpose of The Autism Education Fund is to support autism education-related programs or organizations benefiting individuals, families, educators and the community. Grant proposals must must align with the fund’s purpose in order to be considered.
Only non-profit organizations are eligible to receive grants from the Community Foundation. If you are not a non-profit organization (i.e. if you are a group, a family, etc.), then you can ask a non-profit organization to serve as your fiscal intermediary, and work together to apply for a grant.
To apply for a grant, contact Blair Lumpkins, Program Officer at the Community Foundation, at email@example.com or call (434) 793-0884.
