Preservation Foundation unveils new grant application

The Cherokee Preservation Foundation will use a new grant application, beginning with the Spring 2012 grant cycle. The Foundation staff will explain the new grant application process at community meetings in October.   

The new grant application process will allow the Foundation and grantees track project results to know if the grants were successful after completion. The application will also help grantees gauge where they need to be spending the most time during their grant projects.

Cherokee Preservation Foundation is now joining with other Western North Carolina grantmakers to use a common application, which will make the process simpler and more efficient for applicants submitting to more than one regional funder.

The meetings will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. on Oct. 11, at United Community Bank in Andrews, from 10 to 11 a.m. on Oct. 14, at the Qualla Arts & Crafts in Cherokee, and from 2 to 3 p.m. on Oct. 17, at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.

To RSVP, call 828.497.5550.
