Got a great idea for Berkeley that volunteers and a little money could carry out? UC Berkeley Chancellor’s Community Partnership Grants pair community groups with UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and/or students plus supply funding. Find out more about the upcoming 2014 grant cycle here.
A workshop and chance to meet potential partners is scheduled 4-6 PM Oct. 30 at the Berkeley Skydeck, 2150 Shattuck, Penthouse Floor. The deadline for pre-proposals is Dec. 9. For these pre-proposals, you don’t need to work out in advance all details (such as city approvals and exact partnerships).
Groups that are nonprofits will need a 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor. If your project involves public open space or recreation, BPFP may be able to help. Get in touch! We have lots of experience (one or more grants to our partners from every cycle) and are glad to advise. In addition, if your project doesn’t need the $5000 minimum grant amount, we may be able to package it with others.
