DISCRETIONARY GRANT PROGRAM

The Brooke Jackman Foundation Discretionary Grant Program provides funding of up to $2,500 at any time during the year. These grants may be used to plan larger projects or to carry out programs in which only a modest amount of funding is required. The Foundation is open to proposals rooted in any literacy disciplines in any format. Proposals are submitted in the form of a two- to three-page letter that addresses all proposal requirements in a brief and concise format. The proposal must include an itemized budget for the use of the funds requested. For Discretionary Grants, funding decisions are normally made within 30 days following our receipt of the proposal. Applicants must submit only the original proposal.

Postmark deadline: June 15.
