Grants for Non-Profit Organizations

Our Grant Nomination Committee selects organizations to participate based on member interest and current issues within the community.  The giving cycle begins with a fast pitch presentation of selected organizations. This event gives members an overview of nominees as well as a platform to educate our members and guests of needs within the community.  The finalists chosen from the fast pitch are the asked to submit a grant proposal for our consideration.
