Promise Grants (Beca "Promisa")
Promise Grant (Beca "Promesa") Guidelines
Promise Grants support charitable community organizations that provide services to underserved and marginalized populations in DeKalb County. Promise Grants are supported by two funds at the DeKalb County Community Foundation:
- The Promise Fund was created to inspire the community to build leadership skills and empower the underserved population within DeKalb County especially for recent immigrants.
- The Wiegele Family Early Childhood Literacy Fund was created to support early childhood literacy through organizations that provide direct outreach services to underserved populations of very young children (birth to kindergarten), including their parents, in DeKalb County.
Applying for a Grant
Applications for Promise Grants are available starting in October of each year. Applications are due by mid-November. Grant applications must be submitted online. Grant decisions are generally made within one month of the application deadline and applicants will be notified electronically or by phone.
It is the policy of the DeKalb County Community Foundation to operate without regard to race, creed, color, sex, religion, marital status, age, national origin, ancestry, political affiliation, sexual orientation, disability, or veteran status.
