Campbell Shares Funding Resource for Nonprofits

Councilwoman Debbie Campbell recognizes the efforts and value of nonprofits
working to improve Salisbury, so she passes along word of this valuable resource.

Thanks to the Foundation Center, many funding opportunities with the potential to benefit local groups are described in one easy resource listing. Many are nationally available, while others are limited to certain geographic areas or by other criteria.

To name just a few nationally available programs accepting Requests for Proposals (RFPs) right now are:

1.) "Project Ignition" provides grants for students to develop safe driving messages for students in grades 9 - 12.

2.) ***Target Corporation's Local Store Grants provide funding for literacy, arts and family violence prevention initiatives.

3.) ***Patagonia, the famous outdoor gear and clothing company, is offering funds to 501(c)(3) nonprofits or those with a comparable sponsor that work to protect and preserve the environment, with small grassroots organizations especially targeted.

To learn more about these many exciting opportunities, visit the Foundation Center's RFP resource page at Foundation Center. If you would like to subscribe to their wonderful RFP Bulletin, go to RFP Bulletin
