The Greater Ishpeming Area Community Fund and Negaunee Community Fund will be giving one $3,000 grant to an eligible non profit organization in November 2018. Submit your application by September 30, 2018. The Fund Committee will select 5 proposals to compete for the grant funds. Those 5 non profits will present their proposals at a Greater Ishpeming Negaunee Area Chamber Business After Hours event on November 7th at the US National Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum. Those attending the event will vote with their dollars for the non profit proposal they feel is deserving of the $3,000 grant. Each non profit will walk away with the dollars they receive for votes, but the proposal with the most votes/dollars will receive the $3,000 grant!
If you are unsure whether your organization is an eligible 501C3 non-profit organization, contact 906-226-7666. Please explain in detail in the application how your organization will present its cause at the Business After Hours Event. At the event, your organization will be given space with one 8 foot table for your display. What will you display? How will you get your message across? We are looking for proposals that will include creative displays that will encourage attendees to vote!
