Grants ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 to Pierce County, Washington nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies for organizational support. Funding is intended to ensure that smaller nonprofit entities have the resources they need to fulfill their missions. Additionally, these general operating funds support the social impact of organizations as a whole.
The strongest Strengthening Pierce County grant proposals paint a clear picture of how the applicant organization:
1. Has a clear desired impact and goals. For many organizations the application will be strongly tied to an existing strategic plan. For organizations that don’t have a strategic plan, the application should address the process that the organization is using to discern desired impact and goals.
2. Engages in organizational learning that informs its programs and practices. We are looking for evidence of how the organization gathers and uses insights and data from its key stakeholders–its own staff and board, volunteers, community partners, and the people that are impacted by its programs.
