National Alliance for Grieving Children: Community Expansion GrantsDeadline: July 31, 2015
The National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC) provides a network for nationwide communication between hundreds of professionals and volunteers who want to share ideas, information and resources with each other to better support the grieving children and families they serve in their own communities. Through this network, the NAGC offers online education, hosts an annual symposium on children’s grief, maintains a national data base of children’s bereavement support programs, and promotes national awareness to enhance public sensitivity to the issues impacting grieving children and teens. The NAGC is currently accepting applications from local child bereavement organizations for programs that bring grief support services to youth from ethnically diverse or low-income communities not served by existing bereavement programs.
Amount: The NAGC, in partnership with the New York Life Foundation, anticipates making the following awards: 10 grants of up to $15,000 each; six grants of up to $25,000 each; six grants of up to $50,000 each ($25,000 a year for two years); and six grants of up to $100,000 each ($50,000 a year for two years). The application amount must not be greater than 10% of the organization’s most recent fiscal year actuals.
Eligibility: Organizations must have held nonprofit 501(c)(3) status for at least three years and not be classified as a private foundation.
