Agents for Change through Education (ACE)
We are a group of fifteen students from Southwestern University participating in a first-year seminar on philanthropy. While studying why people give and how to give more effectively, we also have the privilege of awarding a $4,000 grant generously provided by the Georgetown Health Foundation and Regions Bank. We are accepting applications from non-profit organizations that work within the Georgetown community, emphasizing support for children and youth.
ACE believes that the best way to create a better tomorrow for Georgetown’s children and youth is to encourage their education. Through education, young people gain choices, opportunities, and the tools to mold their own futures. Children and youth can be energized and inspired through the relationships they form and the community that sustains them.
We understand that supporting education may include focusing on basic needs, mental and physical health, and providing after-school programs. ACE aspires to have a substantial effect on the wellbeing of the youth by supporting an organization that works to produce long-term benefits for individual children and for the Georgetown Community.
Request for Proposals
We invite applications for a one-time grant to be administered in October 2012 used over a six-month period, ending no later than April 2013.
We will conduct site visits of each finalist; as these visits cannot conflict with our academic schedules, some will need to take place outside weekday business hours. To be considered for the grant, applicants must therefore be willing to host a site visit on the afternoon of Friday October 5, 2012 or over the weekend of October 6th - 7th.
For any questions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
