2018 Community Grants Information Sessions

Mark your calendars!


As you prepare for the 2018 foundation grant cycle, please join Lori Trenholm, Community Investment Officer, for an information session about DCCF Community Grants.

You may wish to attend one of the two grant-seekers information sessions scheduled at the Lawrence Public Library. The library is located at 707 Vermont Street, and free two-hour parking is available in the city parking garage at 7th and Vermont.

Wednesday, January 10, 12:00 pm, Lawrence Public Library Meeting Room C
Thursday, January 11, 4:00 pm, Lawrence Public Library, Meeting Room C

The sessions are open to anyone. They are especially helpful to people who are new to grant writing and/or unfamiliar with our foundation's Community Grants program.

Attendees will learn about the types of activities we fund and how to improve their chances of getting a grant. Questions are welcome throughout the session, or please contact Lori Trenholm at loritrenholm@dccfoundation.org.

The first grant deadline for applications for Community Grants will be Thursday, February 1, 2018. Organizations may apply once per calendar year. Applications are available on our website six weeks before each grant deadline. The second grant deadline for 2018 will be Tuesday, September 4, 2018, due to the Labor Day holiday.
