Who benefits from
Community Outreach funds?
How are Community Outreach Funds prioritized?
In years past, requests for general donations were often accepted and we left how the funds would be used up to the discretion of the private organization. However, with budgetary cuts across the board, we are being approached by more groups than ever. While we cannot guarantee anything in advance, we will prioritize our funding along the following guidelines:
1. Requests that benefit a large number or diverse population of people on our base.
2. Requests that have a lasting impact. (e.g. equipment that will not only be used by current members, but new ones for years to come).
3. Requests that support educational growth, promote wellness or foster base community.
There are 7 questions located in the middle of our request form. It is very important that that these are answered completely so the Governing Board can make a decision based on the most accurate information. Questions can be answered in a word document and attached with the request.
Please submit a breakdown of estimated costs associated with the items/events for which you are seeking funding.
Our SCSC Board Meetings take place the first week of each month, where we review and vote upon submitted requests. Please plan ahead! Note that requests MUST be received by the 20th of the month PRIOR to these Board meetings so adequate time can be given for review and personal contact should questions arise. For example, in order to be considered at the March 2017 board meeting, requests must be submitted by February 20th.
Our governing board does not meet over the summer, so please plan to submit requests which will require funding during this time well in advance.
