Understanding Our Application

Applications will not be accepted if the numbers requested are inaccurate or incomplete. Please follow the step-by-step process described on the opening page of the application to ensure these numbers are correct.

Please keep your responses as concise as possible – we accept bulleted information. The first questions are designed to give the reviewers a brief overview of your organization. When answering the DEIA question, be as specific as possible – we seek to understand if / how you are working to operationalize DEIA in ways that go beyond staff and board diversity.

In completing information about your proposal: The amount you request must be between $5,000 and $25,000. The questions in this section get to the heart of your proposal. Through them, we are seeking to better understand the specific need you are addressing and how our funding will help you meet that need. Your past experiences and the knowledge you have gained in working within the community are important to us and should be included. The Optional question provides an opportunity for you to share anything we have not asked but you feel is important in understanding your organization and/or your proposal. And finally, the Summary you provide should capture the most important aspects of your proposal. Your summary will be used in presenting the proposals for the final membership vote.

We request three items: a Proposal Budget explaining how the dollars requested will be spent (please use the template provided); a current Operating Budget for your organization; and a Budget-to-Actual financial statement (for the organization) from the most recently completed fiscal year. You are encouraged to consider applying for general operating expenses as well as program expenses.

Please check the appropriate category(s) in each of the four sections.

Please completely fill out this section.

Don’t forget to electronically sign and submit the application!

AAWGT members will evaluate your application in a careful process. Successful proposals will be placed on a ballot for membership vote in mid-May. Applicants eliminated throughout the process will be promptly notified.
