GRANT DEADLINE APPROACHING-October 1, 2015
Refer girls at your school to apply for Ann Bancroft Foundation funding
It is a busy and exciting time of year for students, teachers and administrators alike as everyone eases into the new school year groove. This time may also be overwhelming for families and girls with economic or personal challenges as they do the best they can to provide or succeed. The Ann Bancroft Foundation aims to help girls in those situations who might otherwise fall through the cracks.
Our next grant application deadline is October 1 and we are hoping that you would help refer girls to our program. Our grants award up to $500 to girls age 5 through high school graduation and help fund experiences in athletics, arts, leadership, outdoors and more. Whatever a girl might be dreaming--we want to help make that dream a reality.
The Ann Bancroft Foundation is working to create a world where every girl has a chance to live her dream and reach her full potential. Since 1997, ABF has awarded over $1.5 million to nearly 4,000 Minnesota girls in Dare to Dream and Let Me Play Grants. 2014 was a record-breaking year in which over $100,000 was awarded to girls in pursuit of their dreams.
We invite you to visit AnnBancroftFoundation.org to learn more about who we are, what we do, and the girls we serve. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone you think might be interested in referring applicants. Application guidelines and forms are available for download on our website, or you may call our office at 612.338.5752 for further details or clarification. Our goal this fall is to fund $80,000. Help us spread the news!
We appreciate your assistance in sharing this opportunity with deserving girls!
