Please note that if your application has any errors or omissions, you will have to re-apply with a different Gmail address.

Only the first 18 qualified and completed applications for Large Grants (up to $30,000) will be considered for the voting ballot.

 

The first 9 qualified and completed applications for Small Grants ($10,000) will be considered on the ballot.

Thus, interested charities should plan to submit their applications as soon as possible, beginning November 7 at 9:00 am.

Once the 18 Large and 9 Small Grant applications have been vetted by the Charity Guild Board, an informational ballot will be conveyed to the Guild Membership. All 2022 Members and Patrons are eligible to vote to select the charities that will receive 2023 funding.  

 

Ballots will be distributed via email in January 2023 and selected charities will be announced within the month.
