OICF grants workshop

The Orcas Island Community Foundation conducts a competitive grant process, distributing approximately $100,000 annually to programs serving the island community.

This year, OICF will host an open community meeting to preview the 2013 grants process on Thursday, Jan. 24 from 3:30-5 p.m. at the Eastsound Fire Hall.

It’s an opportunity for potential applicants to learn more about the process, review the findings of OICF’s community needs survey, and discuss ideas for possible funding. OICF will prioritize grants addressing three primary concerns that ran across all sectors of their needs assessment:

• Increasing coordination and cooperation of programs and services

• Providing education and training for both staff and community to increase capacity

• Developing  pathways of communication to enhance outreach, and support

Donors are also invited to attend to learn more about participating as a Partner in Philanthropy.
