We’re hosting another round of Facebook mini-grants, but we’re changing things up! Instead of three equal mini-grants, there will be a first ($750), second ($500), and third ($250) place. Nonprofits submit a photo and 200-word description of how they’d use the money, we post an album of all the entrants on Facebook, then the public votes. The three organizations with the most ‘likes’ win!
Who Can Enter?
Nonprofits and government entities who serve Northwest Ottawa County.
How Do I Enter?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 13, 2018, telling GHACF in 200 words or less why your organization deserves the grant. Be sure to include a photo that best represents your project or organization. (This is the photo that people vote on so be sure it best represents your organization!)
The public will vote on our Facebook page July 17–22. It’s up to the organizations to get people to vote for their cause, so be sure to share your photo and tell your friends. Organizations can share via email, social media, or plain old word-of-mouth, but the only votes that will be counted will be ‘Likes’ on the GHACF Facebook album.
How Are the Winners Selected?
The three nonprofits with the most ‘Likes’ win—and this time there will be a first, second, and third place. Votes will be counted July 23 and the winners announced July 24.
