2019 Seward Community Foundation Mini-Grant Program Applications accepted year-round

Seward Community Foundation (SCF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), is pleased to announce it is accepting applications for mini-grants. Mini-grants of up to $1,000 are intended to be flexible funding opportunities that support a broad range of community needs throughout the year.

Applications will be accepted from qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, such as Tribal entities, schools, and faith-based organizations) that support charitable organizations and programs in the Seward/Moose Pass area. Grants may support a broad range of community needs, including but not limited to health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development.

Grant projects must be completed within one year of the award and are subject to the grantee completing an online grant agreement signifying acceptance of the terms and conditions of the grant. A final grant report must also be submitted online by the assigned due date. Due dates and the forms to submit for these follow-ups can be found by logging into the online grant system.

Grant applications must be submitted online. The Seward Community Foundation’s Advisory Board reviews mini-grant applications at their monthly meeting and the deadline to submit an application for consideration is the first Wednesday of each month. Any overdue grant reports or other follow-ups for previous grant awards from ACF and its Affiliates must also be submitted using the online grant system prior to the deadline for the current application to be considered.

Please review SCF’s Mini-Grant Guidelines to determine your eligibility before applying.
