The Finish Line Youth Foundation (FLYF) is pleased to introduce two new grant initiatives effective May 2010. As with all other grant applications, stating the need and providing adequate information that proves potential impact of the grant will be needed.
FOUNDER'S GRANT (Emergency Funds Grants)
$5,000 - $25,000
These grants would be awarded to qualifying organizations that have an emergency need that would somehow be keeping the organization from providing current services. Examples would be natural disasters or other unforeseen circumstances that require special funding to help build or develop facilities or equipment needs.
$10,000 - $75,000
The Legacy Grants will be awarded to qualifying organizations in need of improvements and/or renovations to existing buildings, grounds, and property or for new facilities and/or grounds.
How To Proceed: As with all other grant applicants, please start with the Online Eligibility Quiz. Once your organization is found to be eligible to receive FLYF funds, you will need to provide the following information:
Abstract/Need Statement - An in-depth description of the project/funding need and stated objectives - specific statements of anticipated project outcomes, should be measurable, and directly related to project evaluation, budget and the project's sustainability. Also include a description of existing facilities so that comparison of final project to existing conditions can be made.
Summary of Funds Raised - Description of fund raising efforts and amounts already pledged/received to date.
Budget Narrative - An in-depth explanation of the financial plan for proposed project.
