A new grant cycle for Goosefoot once again offers funding for nonprofit organizations that serve South Whidbey’s well-established “neighbors helping neighbors” philosophy.
“Goosefoot is pleased to be entering our third year of a formalized community grant process,” Sandra Whiting, Goosefoot’s executive director, said in a press release.
“We are fortunate to have so many nonprofits working on behalf of the South Whidbey community, making our lives here richer and more fulfilling in many different ways.”
Goosefoot funds projects that are in alignment with its mission: To bring neighbors together to nurture a sense of place and community, preserve rural character and enhance local commerce.
Last year, Goosefoot distributed close to $100,000 to 16 organizations through its community grant program.
Organizations must first submit a letter of inquiry, a one-page letter describing the project for which money is being requested. The letter of intent is due on Monday, April 8.
Applicants may apply for grants up to $15,000. Projects best fitting Goosefoot’s priorities will be invited to submit a full application, which will be due May 20.
Goosefoot’s grant program is made possible by profits generated from the Goose Community Grocer, owned by Goosefoot, also a non-profit organization.
