Applicants whose proposals are considered will be notified in mid-October. Because funding is limited, some worthwhile proposals must be declined earlier after initial reviews by staff or by the Board committee.


Pfaffinger requests a  year-end communication from our community grant recipients. This communication should address recent developments in the organization. While there is no prescribed format for this report, and a couple of pages will suffice, we do look forward to hearing from each recipient organization.
