The RE/MAX Community Chest Grant Cycle for 2019 opens Monday, March 18. The application deadline is April 12. Grants will be awarded in May 2019.
A total of $28,000 in community grants will be awarded. While there is no limit to the amount for which you may apply, it is recommended that applications be in the $500 to $2,500 range.
Who Is Eligible to Apply?
Nonprofit Organizations – Any active 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a project in need of funding that directly benefits the community is eligible to apply. (Organization must be listed as active on the IRS exempt organization verification site, https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos.)
501(c)(8) and 501(c)(19) organizations are also eligible to apply, but must fill out a separate application and follow expenditure responsibility participation requirements (download participation requirements here).
Public Agencies – Public agencies such as schools, libraries, parks, fire and police departments with an unfunded project that directly benefits the Stanwood-Camano community may apply.
Grants are available for both projects and operating funds. Projects must meet the following criteria to be considered:
- They must directly benefit the Stanwood-Camano community (defined by the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District).
- They must be realistic and attainable.
- They must have experienced project staff and/or volunteers in place who can successfully implement the project.
Operating fund grants are only available to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations physically located within the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District. Operating fund grants are most likely to be awarded to start-up ventures rather than established nonprofit organizations.
All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, which will, at its sole discretion, select projects to fund.
