In addition, the grant information and application may be downloaded from the CAL website www.calsandpoint.org.
Applicants must be a nonprofit organization and funds must apply to Bonner County only. Some of the criteria for evaluation include: making a significant impact on the community, being an innovative idea, and involving important local issues and needs.
The Community Assistance League contributes all of the profits from their resale store, Bizarre Bazaar directly back into Bonner County via grants and scholarships. The store thrives from the enthusiastic support of the community who shop there regularly as well as the many generous people who donate gently used quality items to the upscale resale store. This successful business model allows CAL volunteers to contribute financially to many local schools, organizations, and services that enhance the quality of life for many residents of Bonner County.
Grant Applications must be postmarked or returned to Bizarre Bazaar no later than Friday March 31. Late entries will not be accepted.

While we have you ...
... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.Support The Reader
