The Grants Committee met on December 15, 2008. Nine Peace Corps Partnership Projects sponsored by Washington state PCVs were reviewed and recommendations for funding were made for five projects for a total of $2,885.00. An additional donation to Food Lifeline for $1000.00 was recommended to support food banks in western Washington. The SEAPAX board reviewed the Grants Committee’s recommendations and approved the recommended grant awards the following week.
Due to technical problems on the Peace Corps Partnership Projects online donation site, donations were delayed by a couple of weeks. As a result, one of the approved donations was were not made since it was already fully funded and removed by PCPP from their site.
Amounts of grant funds donated by SEAPAX total of $2,000.00; the four PCPP descriptions can be found on the Grants History page.
