2020 Grant Overview
Welcome to Seeds of Strength’s grant application site. Our grantmaking process is the heart of what we do for our community. Thank you for your interest and for all that you do. With the 2020 grant cycle, Seeds of Strength will celebrate 11 years of women coming together through collective giving to benefit the Georgetown community. To date, Seeds of Strength has invested $1,328,000 in 33 different nonprofits serving Georgetown residents. In 2019 we awarded 9 grants totaling $182,000.
Seeds of Strength recognizes the valuable work of the many local nonprofit organizations that address the critical needs and social issues facing our community. To support this work, we annually award grants to nonprofits, providing them with funds to support projects and programs benefiting the residents of Georgetown. Each year Seeds of Strength pools its annual membership donations. In May, those dollars are awarded as community grants based on a democratic selection of grant recipients by the membership.
Our 2020 grant cycle will start accepting Letters of Intent (LOI) from nonprofit agencies on October 1, 2019.
