The Skokie Community Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2022 grant cycle. This year the Foundation is seeking to fund proposals that address needs that have arisen in Skokie due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. We invite proposals in which two or more organizations collaborate for the benefit of Skokie residents. One of the co-applicants must be a 501 (c)(3) organization, a school, or a government entity.
The Foundation requests proposals that aim to help Skokie residents recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath. Preference will be given to proposals that directly address how the project will benefit Skokie residents in areas of clearly identified needs. These areas may include but are not limited to: psychological and social-emotional ramifications of COVID; issues pertaining to the return to the workplace and school setting, as well as the challenges faced by students after prolonged remote learning. Additionally, preference will be given to proposals that recognize the importance of the racial, social, and economic inequality that were exposed and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Proposals may request up to $10,000. The Foundation intends to award $25,000 during this grant cycle. Grants will be awarded in November 2021 for use in the 2022 calendar year.
