D22 EDUCATION GRANT PROGRAM
Consistent with its mission of promoting duplicate bridge and specifically programs of education for its membership, District 22 will accept grant proposals from member units and clubs that focus on bridge education and membership building.
The D22 board will budget a yearly amount to be used for education grants. The maximum grant award for a project will be $1,000. Smaller amounts may be awarded. The suggested minimum annual budget for the district is $5,000.
APPLICANT SUBMISSION PROCESS:
Any unit, club or teacher that is a member of District 22 may submit a grant request.
An applicant should fill out the Grant Request form available on the D22 website. Submissions from clubs or teachers should first be approved by the Unit president.
Grant requests should include the amount requested; a description of the project; a projected budget; and how success will be measured.
The completed application should be sent to the D22 Education Committee.
DISTRICT APPROVAL PROCESS:
Grant requests will be considered on a rolling basis. The maximum amount awarded for any one grant is $1000.
Consideration will be given to whether a previous request has come through the same Unit and for what purpose and in what year.
The D22 Education Committee will present grant requests that are complete and meet the above criteria to the D22 board for approval. Such approval may be given at a board meeting or via email.
Approved grants will also be advertised on the D22 website. Once the project is complete, grantees may be requested to share their successes with their peers to promote best practices across the district.
