Grant Applications 2020 Now Being Accepted

2020 GRANT REQUEST INVITATION   

Dear Agency Representative:

The Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation is pleased to make available $300,000 in grants for non-profit organizations that serve the greater Washtenaw County area.  These funds are intended for specific projects, rather than for administrative, individual, or general operating expenses.  Because the Foundation tries to positively impact as many people in the community as possible, grants typically are $5,000 or less; however, larger grants may be made in cases of a compelling community need and as Kiwanis revenues permit.  Examples of previous years’ funded projects by the Foundation includes: summer camp programs, literacy programs, health programs, mentoring programs, and early childhood education programs.  Programs that benefit children are given preference.  Please be aware that receipt of a grant from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor Foundation in the past is not a guarantee of funding in 2020.

Please provide complete and detailed information about the project for which you are requesting funding. You may be contacted by a Kiwanis member to visit your organization to learn more about your proposed project; or if a grant is awarded, they may wish to see the project in operation. Also, a representative of your organization may be invited to make a presentation to one of our Club’s committees to answer questions.
