We are currently accepting grant applications for our October 1st grant cycle.
We seek proposals for projects and programs which benefit the people of Whatcom County and show active partnerships with other organizations on an identified community health need that leverages the impact of our support.
If your organization is interested in applying for a major or strategic impact grant, please submit a letter of inquiry outlining the basic proposal (one page) to Sue Sharpe by September 20th, 2017. If there is mutual interest in pursuing the proposal, completion of a formal grant request will be recommended.
The following are a few examples of programs and projects that have made a meaningful impact: support grieving children, teens and families, housing for homeless youth, end-of-life caregiver support, avalanche safety equipment, opiate abuse prevention education materials, and school drop-out prevention programs.
