FBB usually chooses four beneficiaries to receive grants each quarter, but one quarter a year we feature a single, game-changing grant for one innovative organization.
This grant is called the Compassionate Impact Grant (CIG), a program that supports organizations with social initiatives that are:
> innovative,
> transformative,
> evidence-based, and
> solving community problems.

In Fall 2020, FBB will make a grant in the amount of $30,000 to one organization with the goal of increasing that organization’s ability to fulfil its mission.
Priority will be given to organizations that can show how the grant would tangibly increase their capacity.
Not all—or even most—of the grant money must be spent on “capacity building” per se, but the grant should be a true game-changer for your organization.

All applicants must be non-profit organizations with current 501(c)3 status with U.S. Internal Revenue Service with an organization expense budget that does not exceed $500,000 USD.

Utilize This Offer

This is an open, competitive process and will assess applicants on their ability to provide evidence-driven,innovative solutions that reach underserved communities.

Application deadline: February 7, 2020, 12:00pm Central Time.

2. Prepare/update paperwork (certificates and atests usually required from an organization like yours);
3. Write (baby steps...!) and discuss a project draft - to validate the priorities within your group and to train your grant writing skills;
4. Do not wait to find a call and then start writing your oroposal/project. Start now!!!
