WILLIAMS, Ariz. - The Greater Williams Community Fund (GWCF) invites local community organizations to apply for grant funding, with the application available beginning Wednesday, March 14, and due on April 18, 2012.
To assist prospective applicants, a free information session outlining the grant application process will be held 6-7 p.m. on March 15 at the St. John's Episcopal-Lutheran Church, located at the corner of Second Street and Grant Avenue in Williams. Attendees will learn about the grant process and receive helpful advice on completing their application. Attendance is recommended but not required, and attendance does not guarantee grant funding.
The GWCF expects to award a total of $7,500 in grants this year, and any organization with nonprofit, 501(3)(c) status serving the greater Williams community is eligible to apply. Grant funding is made possible from the investment earnings of the fund, a permanent endowment created to support a variety of community issues in and around Williams, including youth, education, social services, healthcare, senior services and the arts.
