In Progress

Matched with:

Laurie R. M.

This project will save us $3,750, allowing us to complete more grant applications and therefore help meet our income needs.

What We Need

  • Grant Template outlining the Organization’s mission, strategic plan, activities and budget
  • Tips and suggestions on customizing Grant Template for specific grants

How This Will Help

Each day 10,000 baby boomers turn 65. How will we provide services for them in the future? Interfaith Caregivers has been providing services to who are people 65+ for 26 years but in recent years the need for our services has taken a giant leap. To keep up with the demand we need to increase our funding. In the competitive world of grants, funding for seniors is limited. Therefore, every grant takes on greater importance. We need to have a clear, concise message to ensure the need for the services Interfaith Caregivers provides is understood and valued.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a strategic plan and grant proposals which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff support and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

We drive some of our clients to volunteer at other organizations. One woman is on the board of a local college. It is still important for them to give back. It is great to see their commitment. I always tell them I want to be them when I grow up!
