If there’s one thing we love doing, it’s giving back to the community. We especially love it if it helps local youth. In fact, we love doing it so much that we put our money where our mouths are by granting funds to organizations with the mission to impact youth development in sports and the arts. There’s still time to apply. The deadline is August 1.
Every year, our Community Grant Program awards $100,000 to fund local non-profits that get youth involved in arts, performing arts, and sports. If this sounds like your organization, and you’d like to expand your program this year or maybe invest in some better equipment, we’d like to help. This year, Events DC’s goal is to hand out $200,000 to organizations that support DC’s youth through these programs.
Apply today at http://eventsdc.com/AboutUs/Community.aspx. Applications are due August 1.
Along with submitting a completed application, your organization must:
- Be a DC-based non-profit organization.
- Use the funding for programs or projects that support youth focused sports, performing or cultural arts programs.
- Present a copy of an annual financial audit conducted by a certified public accountant for the organization’s most recent fiscal year; or if the organization has not conducted an annual financial audit, a copy of the organization’s IRS Form 990 for the most recent tax year.
