Since 2001 The LIfespan Foundation dba Grants to You has been providing volunteer beginners with very low cost classes in grants research and writing so that they could assist their favorite, local nonprofit agency. The results are amazing...699 graduates (43% senior citizens, 13% students), 95 grants won valued at $1,188,930.
Further 5 new online class options have been added for those unable to take a live class.
Grants To You has achieved significat results at a minimal cost. A live class costs only $330 to provide and the projected results are $14,000 based on an average of $1,000 per graduate. Now that is what I call a return on investment.
We are having challenges however. Our chapters are having difficutly with their start up and often leave us without any results. Therefore, we are seeking volunteers to serve as mentors/coaches to each chapter and stay in communication with them untll they get their chapter off the ground.
Grants To You has been honored on numerous occasions by Wells Fargo Community Partners and Foundation as well as the Prescott, AZ Evening LIons Club.
