Small Grant Opportunities for Local Community Project

One of the Peace Corps skills, adaptability, comes to mind as the Grants Committee moves forward in 2017.  There has been so much support from donations, calendar or note card sales, and membership that we are eager to connect with local organizations that meet the SEAPAX mission and guidelines. We are asking for suggestions from our membership of local organizations. We are planning in conjunction with the Give Big on May 10th to stretch our money value. Another Peace Corps skill, resourcefulness! Also, if you know a Give Big organization you’d like to see supported, let us know. The Grants are your way to make a small difference.

Local applications are due April 30th. Access this application on the SEAPAX website under the Fundraising tab.Please contact Ilene Jaffe and Millie Andrews with questions.

At its March meeting, the SEAPAX board voted to allocate small grants to Peace Corps Partnerships Projects (PCPP), both of which implement the Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) initiative in Swaziland and Cambodia with youth projects. SEAPAX welcomes new proposals from both domestic and international applicants, and will acknowledge within two to four weeks.

The Grants committee is seeking new members. Join us in evaluating grants from domestic and international projects. Please contact Ilene Jaffe and Millie Andrews:
