NPU V community groups,
We have revised our community event sponsorship fund (up to $400) to simplify it and allow its use for providing emergency supplies and other crisis related activities that are not typical events in the community. Please see attached.
Also, I came across the funding opportunity down below which is due on 4/4. And Georgia Center for Nonprofits is keeping a great list: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1BZ3CdQGmOILNWTFTRTL62-NbHl_YjNquSocq_VIGfXQ/edit.
LISC and Verizon are partnering to provide grants of up to $10,000 to businesses and non-profits facing immediate financial pressure because of COVID-19—especially entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically underserved communities who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. The grant can be used for paying rent and utilities, meeting payroll, paying outstanding debt to vendors, and other immediate operational costs.
The first round of grant applications is due on Saturday, April 4th. I understand this is very short notice. However, the application is short, collecting background information on the organization and its needs. There will be another round.
Please share this application with the groups you support and others in your network.
