Cancer Prevention & Early Detection Community Grants (Deadline 3/15/17)
The Foundation will award up to ten $25,000 grants for community-level projects that focus on helping people prevent cancer or find it earlier and that demonstrate the potential to make a positive impact, especially in under-served communities. Our goal is to provide the resources needed to fund vital community-level cancer education and screening activities.
The 2017 grants cycle has two required two steps:
- Each potential applicant must complete and submit the Intent to Apply form by 6:00 PM Eastern Time on March 15, 2017. Submission of the Intent to Apply form is REQUIRED. The information submitted is nonbinding and will be used for the Foundation’s planning purposes. Organizations which do not submit the completed Intent form on time will not be eligible for consideration in the ‘invitation to apply’ phase of the 2017 grants cycle. All organizations with on-time submissions will be notified by March 31 about whether or not they will be invited to apply. Applications will be disseminated by email to invited organizations on April 3, 2017, and due on April 24, 2017. Selection for this competitive process will be determined by adherence to the Guidelines and best fit with the Foundation’s mission.
- Completed applications are due April 24, 2017, by 6:00 PM Eastern Time. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered. Upon receipt, applications will first have an administrative review by Foundation staff. Applications that are complete and compliant with the guidelines will next be assessed for merit by an external review group convened by the Foundation.
