The application process for 2020-2021 is now open.





APPLICATION PROCESS

The YWL proudly supports many local charitable organizations and volunteer agencies through funding and service. For the upcoming 2020-2021 cycle we are focusing on community giving with the theme Local Giving. Lasting Impact.  With this slogan we aim to focus on projects and programs impacting the local community.  We know organizations and families basic needs have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and we hope this theme will allow many organizations to apply for a grant.  If you believe this theme aligns with certain project(s) being pursued by your organization, we encourage you to submit an application for funding.

We ask you to be as detailed as possible with respect to specific needs and their related costs.  The criteria we use to evaluate applications includes the following:

  • How well the application fits within the giving theme 
  • The general stability and quality of the organization seeking funding from the YWL.
  • The overall impact of the proposed project. Data on past success rates, number of people who will be helped etc. is always useful. 

We welcome both large and small requests. Grants are awarded with the stipulation that the money must be spent in full within one year of receipt. The YWL Charity Research Committee will meet in the fall of 2020 to begin our evaluation process. We will decide final appropriations after our year-end fundraiser in late May 2021.  Funds will be distributed in June 2021 and all applicants will be notified of our decision at that time.  Please note that we only fund program costs, we do not fund general overhead/operating costs.

The application deadline is September 1, 2020.  A copy of the application can be found here.

Please contact Charity Research Chairperson, Lindsay Burns, with any questions.
