The Sudbury Foundation in Sudbury, Massachusetts, is accepting applications to its 2018 Children, Youth, and Families Capacity Building Grant Program.
The program helps young people realize their full potential and become caring productive citizens, with a focus on underserved youth who face economic and/or personal barriers to success. To that end, the program provides proven youth-serving nonprofits within the foundation's geographic area with funds for capacity-building projects designed to strengthen the organization's core capacities.
In the spring 2018 round of funding, the foundation will consider projects that fall within the following tracks: strategic and/or business planning; board or staff development; and fund development plans and systems. Grant amounts will be determined on a project-by-project basis, but in 2017 the program awarded grants ranging between $5,000 and $100,000.
To be eligible, applicants must primarily serve children, youth, and families and work within the foundation's geographic area of focus, which includes the towns of Acton, Concord, Framingham, Hudson, Lincoln, Marlboro, Maynard, Natick, Stow, Wayland, and Sudbury in Massachusetts.
Concept papers must be received no later than March 9, 2018. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by April 13, 2018.
