OUR 2018 core mission Nominees

This year we are making five new grants, one for each focus area. The following organizations, two from each focus area, have been recommended by our grant review teams to our membership for a vote in November. One organization from each of the focus areas will be awarded a $12,200 grant. To see information on our Impact Award $100,000 Finalists, click here.

Members will be voting on the merits of these Core Mission nominee’s organizations’ work and mission. These are not project based grants. They are unrestricted grants for the organizations to use as they see fit.

Congratulations to all of the nominees!
