I blogged about some recent disappointments on our family blog. Click here for that update. But, it made me really think about the direction for Girls TALK. I submitted a grant application to a local organization, but got a big fat NO. Sigh. Those that know me well know that I am not quick to give up. So, I have decided to try and build my existing programs with scholarship spots for the remainder of the 2014-2015 school year. I turned to the company that helped me with the 501c3 paperwork for help. They help me with a budget, formal grant application (12-15 pages) and the best part…..identify 3 organizations that would be a good fit for funding. Even better? If one of those 3 say no, they look for another organization for free!
So, this was me this week…..getting all my info together.
I am aiming for 5 scholarship spots per site. This is a great time of year to ask for money…..only a month and a half left in this fiscal year. Hoping that some foundations are feeling generous!
