The San Francisco Japantown Foundation is accepting applications for its 2010 matching grants program. The deadline for applications is Feb. 15, 2010.
The matching grants program will provide up to ten (10) organizations or groups with funding of up to $4,000, fifty percent of which will come from individual donors and the other fifty percent from a dollar-for-dollar match from the Foundation.
An organization/group must first qualify for the matching grants program by submitting a project application. The Foundation will select up to ten (1o) organizations/groups based on how well their proposed projects meet our mission to support cultural, community and educational activities for San Francisco’s Japantown and/or the Japanese American community.
Applications are due on Monday, February 15, 2010, at 5 p.m. Pacific Time. Applications must be received – not postmarked – by this date and time. Applicants can use this form or apply online starting January 26. The Foundation will notify applicants by February 22 if they have been accepted into the 2010 matching grants program.
Organizations/groups selected for the matching grants program will then be asked to encourage donations be made to the organization/group through the Foundation and we will match those earmarked donations dollar-for-dollar up to the amount requested by the applicant, but not more than $2,000, for a possible total grant of up to $4,000. The Foundation will announce the grant totals on April 5, 2010.
