We want to encourage and support collaborative efforts that address real and pressing needs in the community in novel ways. These efforts require innovation, problem solving, lasting and positive community impact, and active, broad community participation toward intended outcomes that can be seen, measured, felt, and observed. All of this must be accomplished by groups that come together to make change that likely would not happen by individuals or groups working and thinking separately.
In no more than 1000 words, provide an overview of your proposal:
After response from and discussion with a committee of the Foundation, you will be invited to prepare a more detailed proposal that provides a clear outline of the project; the roles and tasks to be taken on by each of the collaborating organizations and their members; the budget for each aspect of the project and each collaborating organization; the timeline for completing the project; and the anticipated results and impact on the community, both in the short and long terms.
