Ecotrust's Non-Profit Community Grant Now Open!

Spring is here and so is another great opportunity to secure a grant for free event space from Ecotrust Event Spaces Community Grant Program.

In an effort to make our event venues accessible to non-profits of all sizes and financial means, we have created a Community Grant Program which grants up to six awardees one day rentals at the Natural Capital Center. We are excited to be accepting proposals for our third round.

Preference will go to proposals for events which are:

* Mission driven and invest in the community in a positive way. * Are held at the Natural Capital Center and are a good logistical fit for the Billy Frank Jr. Conference Center or the Outdoor Terrace. * Planned by or directly benefit a local non-profit organization.

Additional consideration will be given to:

* Events that are open to the public and are free or of nominal charge. * Events that are unabashedly hopeful in nature. * Events that have a solid marketing or community outreach plan.

The application deadline is June 1, 2010. View the complete Request for Proposals, Application, Grant Award Package and Exclusive Caterering List at http://www.ecotrust.org/events/community_grant2010.html.
