ANNOUNCEMENT: Grants That Make a Difference

December 16, 2008

We live in uncertain times colored by mounting concern about the impact of the economic crisis on nonprofits and the communities they serve. In the spirit of the holiday season, however, we may gain some perspective as we focus not on losses but rather on the gifts, given and received, that contribute to the building of a better world. To that end, we'd like to invite nonprofits, foundations, individual grantseekers, and anyone involved in or touched by philanthropy to share your experiences with a grant or other support you gave or received as part of a new feature called Grants That Make a Difference. What impact did the grant have? Who did it help? What positive change did it create? Why was it effective? With your help, we'll regularly feature stories selected from those submitted on PhilanTopic, at one or more of our regional Philanthropy Front and Center blogs, and on other areas of our web site. So tell us your stories and help us tell the story of philanthropy.
