The Jessica Stevens Community Foundation (JSCF), an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF), is pleased to announce the opening of its 2017-2018 grant cycle!
Our focus is on healthy communities with activities that support compassionate health care, innovative education, community enrichment, active enjoyment of the natural environment, and arts and cultural expression. We are accepting applications from qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents) that support organizations and programs in the Upper Susitna Valley, and we will award grants for operating costs and specific projects as long as your organization is centered on one or more of our healthy community criteria. Individual grant amounts will be awarded from $500-$3,000. This year, JSCF will award a total of $16,000, which amounts to a $1,000 increase over last year.
Grant applications must be submitted online and received by 5:00pm AKST on Friday, July 14, 2017. Grant reports for previous grant awards from ACF/JSCF must also be submitted prior to the deadline for the current application to be considered.
Awarded grant proposals must be completed within one year of receiving a grant. A final grant report must be received before the grantee will be eligible for another grant opportunity from ACF/JSCF.
Please review JSCF’s Grant Guidelines to determine your eligibility before applying.
Please direct general questions to JSCF’s Program Manager, Kara Walker, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please direct eligibility and technical questions about the online application system to ACF’s Affiliate Program Officer, Shawn Rivera, at 907-274-6708 or email@example.com.
