Funding Opportunities

Featured Grant Opportunity

Willamette MBA Community Grant Program

The Community Grant Program is the funding arm of our cohort in the Willamette MBA course “Grant Administration: Concept to Consequence.” Thanks to a generous donation from Mountain West Investment Corporation, we have the opportunity to take on the responsibility of a community foundation, selecting projects and programs to fund.
We have been hard at work preparing to release our LOI Request and RFP to the community. These will be shared within the next two weeks using our email newsletter. The LOI deadline is November 26th. Please invite fellow community leaders to subscribe to our email list and refer to our website for more information on applying.
