Special Projects is our grant-funding philanthropy which began in the mid 1990s. In May of each year, a request for proposals is advertised. Over the past few years, the awards have ranged between $1,000 and $8,000 per project, with the average grant award being approximately $4,000.
100% of the money that is awarded is used only for the project. Administrative and overhead fees are not allowed. We only fund not-for-profit (nonprofit) organizations.
In October of each year, the grant recipients for that year come to a poster session where they introduce and present their projects to the Guild’s members.
