Nonprofit organizations that provide services to the Port Washington community, take note.
The 2013 grant applications through the Port Washington Community Chest are available for 501 (c) 3 charitable organizations that provide services to the community of Port Washington. But the time to act is now. The deadline for submissions is April 1.
Grant funds can provide general operating support or specific program support but cannot be used for capital items. The total amount of money the Community Chest can allocate in grants is based on the amount of money it raises in its annual fundraising campaign – check out the “Red Feather” in front of the Community Chest building and Train Station.
The application is available on-line at www.portchest.org. Or, request an application by calling the Community Chest office at (516) 767-2121.
Criteria used to evaluate applications include the need for services in Port Washington, the number of Port Washingtonians served, the need for funds, the ability of the applicant to deliver the services, and the fiscal management and stability of the organization. Applications are reviewed and interviews are conducted in April and May by a committee of the Community Chest. Decisions are finalized, and organizations are notified of results in June 2013.
