Chapter Grants for Get HandsOn Challenge
Share |
As part of AmeriCorps Alums leadership in the Get HandsOn Campaign, we are pleased to announce the availability of $10,000 in grants to our chapters and alumni!

We will award ten (10), $1,000 grants, for projects that take place on or around Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, January 17, 2011.  The most thoughtful, versatile and impactful grant proposals may be showcased as projects to be replicated during the year! AmeriCorps Alums has big goals... we are aiming to engage a total of 2500 volunteers and 270 service leaders, and reduce CO2 production by 1.0 million pounds... can you help?

Although funding will NOT be limited to environmentally-based grant proposals, AmeriCorps Alums will give priority to support chapters and alumni who identify environmental issues in their local community and create corresponding volunteer projects that reduce CO2 production and energy consumption. There's an environmental impact toolkit including suggested project ideas on CO2 reduction, energy reduction/consumer savings here. But regardless of focus area, all proposals should contain a component to recruit Get HandsOn campaign participants and train service leaders (like yourselves, right?).
