Grants available from Ardor Brothers:
We at Arbor Brothers are pleased to kick-off our 2011 grantmaking cycle with the announcement of our Request for Proposals (RFP). Applicant organizations will be vetted over the summer and a portfolio of grantees will be selected in September. This group will likely include between three and five non-profits, each receiving a grant composed of two parts: a financial contribution of between $50,000 and $100,000 and an ongoing consulting support package. During the year following selection, we will invest substantial time and resources helping grantees build capacity in critical areas such as financial management, strategic planning and outcomes measurement.
We are excited to see the very best organizations that the tri-state area has to offer, so please forward this announcement on to any potential applicants in the TFA New York universe and any of your other networks. Materials detailing the grant structure, eligibility requirements and the application process and can be found on our website (http://www.arborbrothers.org/apply) and are also attached to this email. Applications will be accepted from June 15 – July 29. As a reminder, we are seeking applicants that are:
· Early-stage non-profit organizations serving under-resourced communities,
· Located in NY-NJ-CT, and
· Working within the fields of education, youth, and workforce development.
