SE Uplift is accepting applications for grant selection committee members. This is a great opportunity to learn more about grant writing, network with fellow community leaders, and support grassroots projects aimed at strengthening communities.
Committee members evaluate grant applications based on established criteria and make funding recommendations to the SE Uplift Board of Directors. No prior experience with grantmaking is necessary to apply. This is a rewarding opportunity to experience, first-hand, the conversations that funders have about which projects to reward, network with fellow community leaders and support grassroots projects aimed at strengthening our communities.
Attend a neighborhood meeting on Wednesday, November 9th at The New Day Center for the Arts (5514 SE Foster) to learn more about the 72Foster building, an affording housing development with commercial space scheduled to be built at SE 72nd Ave. and Foster Rd, across from the Portland Mercado.
