Thanks to a generous grant from the Virginia Wellington Cabot Foundation, Healthy Peninsula currently has a limited amount of grant funding available to support local organizations or initiatives that work with or support young families and children from birth to five years. Projects should be planned, designed, or carried out in collaboration with, or with input from, young parents. Ongoing programs, as well as new projects or initiatives, may qualify for funding. Priority will be given to proposals that emphasize partnerships or collaboration, impact sizable numbers of parents and/or children, or that have a long-term or sustainable impact. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of early childhood professionals and community members.
We will not fund capital campaigns, fundraising efforts, legislative efforts, political campaigns, or programs that are exclusively religious in nature.
Funds are available as one-time grants of $500 to $800. Proposals will be accepted until Thursday, March 30, 2017, and can be emailed, sent through the USPS, or delivered to the Healthy Peninsula office.
