101 Women grant cycle opens

By Reader Staff

A $10,000 grant award is once again up for grabs to area nonprofits. The organization 101 Women Sandpoint recently opened their fall grant cycle and is encouraging Bonner County nonprofits to apply for the award, online at www.101womensandpoint.com by the Sept. 1 deadline.

The award is open to a wide variety of nonprofits who operate in Bonner County — only religious or political groups are excluded from receiving the grant award.

The fall cycle’s grant will be awarded at the membership meeting on Oct. 26.

The top three finalists that emerge after a vetting process that includes grant application reviews and site visits, will provide a presentation to the members in attendance at the meeting. The winning group will receive the $10,000 grant award.

Previous award recipients include Bonner Partners in Care — an almost all-volunteer group providing weekly free medical and dental clinics for Bonner County residents in need. Sandpoint Area Seniors, Inc. also won an award for being the only local group looking out exclusively for the needs of seniors. SASi provides meals, social interactions, information and services as well as a respite home for families facing Alzheimer’s and other memory issues.

Interested nonprofit organizations can find more information about the grant cycles and the application online at www.101womensandpoint.com.
