- The Inner City Foundation for Charity and Education: $60,000 Tuition support!
- Order of Malta American Association- Southern and Western CT – $7,500, increase of 50%!
- The Exchange Club of New Canaan – $6,000, increase of 20%
All of these foundation grants and the other ones funding Shepherds come from personal relationships developed over time. There is little effectiveness in “cold-calling” a foundation. You have an introduction, an “in”, for most foundations to allow a non-rofit to apply for a grant in th first place.
We ask all readers of this Newsletter if you have an affiliation with a foundation or know the name of a foundation that would be interested in supporting an organization like Shepherds, to kindly consider introducing Shepherds to the key people at the foundation. You never know which door will open and what difference new funding can make to the young people and families we serve!
Best wishes for a continued safe and hopefully relaxing August! We’ll see you in September!
