GRANT APPLICATION 2020
The Grantham Garden Club’s mission is to promote through education the love of gardening among amateurs; to promote the study of horticulture; to protect our native trees, wild flowers and birds; to encourage civic beautification, and to engage in activities which are charitable and educational, including without limitation, awarding grants or educational scholarships in furtherance of this mission (collectively, "Mission").
Each year the Grantham Garden Club (“GGC”) offers grants up to $500 in order to promote its Mission and for projects deemed to be of significant benefit to the Grantham community. Those eligible to apply for GGC grants are residents, employees, or representatives (including those on boards or committees) of Grantham or Eastman (regardless of town of residence), as well as individuals or representatives of a school, library, youth group, or community service organization undertaking educational or project-based activities in Grantham.
Grant applications may be submitted from January through November and are considered on a rolling basis throughout a fiscal year until such time as the allotted budget for grants in a fiscal year is expended. A notice will be posted on the “GGC Grants” page of our website if GGC is no longer considering grant applications during a particular fiscal year. Initial review of an application will typically occur at the next review meeting held after GGC’s receipt of the complete application. Applications will not be accepted after November 30th of any fiscal year.
Areas of interest may include horticulture, botany, landscape design, forestry, environmental science, land management or conservation, control of invasive plants, plant or soil conservation, pollinator preservation, protection or education regarding native trees, wild flowers, or birds, and other fields or projects within the scope of GGC’s Mission. For example, candidates might propose to purchase teaching materials or supplies for educational walks or talks, build a garden, request contribution to a land preservation or conservation project, bring in guest speakers, or attend gardening classes with the goal of sharing or using the knowledge gained in any such classes to help or educate others in the community.
