Serve Washington is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for the BIPOC-Led and Small Nonprofit Equity Fund
Serve Washington has partnered with the Schultz Family Foundation for an exciting opportunity to support the engagement and participation of BIPOC-led and small community-based nonprofit organizations in marginalized communities. If you are not partnered with an AmeriCorps program and are interested in finding out how to remedy that, here is your chance! The BIPOC-led and Small Nonprofit Equity fund is addressing financial and capacity barriers to participating in National Service by providing host fee subsidies and more.
Applicants are required to submit requests for funding in accordance with the Notice of Funding Opportunity for BIPOC and Small Nonprofit Equity Fund, released October 28, 2022.
The grant period will begin December 1, 2022, and end June 30, 2024. Requests will be accepted on a rolling basis as funds are available.
