A fund was developed within the National Grange Foundation for the purpose of supporting deaf activities within the Grange. Because funds are still available, this grant program is being offered to assist states with funding various deaf awareness activities. In the past three years these grants helped Granges in Idaho, Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Washington. If you would like to know more about these projects please go to www.grangefoundation.org.
Any State Grange is eligible to apply for a grant to assist with a worthwhile project that may be planned within the state. Community Granges can apply thru their State Grange.
Grant applications will be due on July 12, 2013 to the National Grange Foundation. If you are mailing it please send to National Grange Foundation, Attn: Samantha Johnson, 1616 H St. NW, Washington, DC 20006 or e-mail it to sjohnsonnationalgrangeorg (sjohnsonnationalgrangeorg) .
Grants up to a maximum of $500.00 will be awarded to each approved application, and will be awarded to the State Grange. The State Grange will have the option of transferring those funds to the Community or Pomona Grange conducting the deaf activity included in the grant application.
A maximum of three grants will be awarded in 2013.
Grants may be awarded for any project that enhances deaf education. Creativity and uniqueness of the projects will also be factored into the selection process. The Grange Foundation is looking for projects with not only an impact on deaf education but plans that involve members working with deaf community in some way. The Foundation will give preference to Granges who are doing more than fundraising.
