Now Accepting Grant Applications for Manson Giving Great Grants

Supporting Arts, Academics, and Career Readiness in Manson Schools

Application deadline: January 23, 2015

The Community Foundation of NCW is now accepting applications for the “Manson Giving Great Grants” program (Manson G3). Established in 2008 by longtime Manson residents Jack and Gale Courtney, the Manson G3 program gives sophomore, junior and senior class Associated Student Body (ASB) officers an opportunity to improve their school district through participating as grantmakers of the program.

Manson G3 awards support programs specifically in the areas of arts, academics, and career readiness. Any student, teacher, administrator, or volunteer in the Manson School District may apply.

Each application is reviewed by the ASB with the Community Foundation acting as advisor and mentor through the grant evaluation process. The ASB students determine all award recipients and amounts, giving them a unique experience in learning the various aspects of grant-making, and value and impact of local philanthropy.

“There is something almost magical about the creativity these grants have inspired in our district.” said Manson Schools Principal, Don Vanderholm. “Suddenly, it’s possible to think outside the box and go there. Furthermore, we see teachers going for other grants because of the success they’ve experienced with the G3s.”

"My father was a migrant agricultural worker who eventually started his own cherry and apple orchard. [He] told me if I wanted to live a better life, I had to get an education. I plan on starting a career with the Chelan PUD with a passion for renewable energy and in turn give back to my parents and community for supporting my dreams.”

REGIONAL IMPACT GRANT RECIPIENT

The Regional Impact Grant provided funds to hire a Housing Justice and Outreach Coordinator to visit rural and underserved areas. Rosie’s bilingual and bicultural skills and experience have increased equity of service. Rosie is building partnerships with local organizations through events such as the Columbia Valley Community Health’s Back to School Drive, as well as posting yard signs.

STRATEGIC CONSULTING GRANT RECIPIENT

Due to being rural, remote, and geographically isolated Aero Methow Rescue Service must be prepared to do more than respond to emergencies. We have become a healthcare partner who fills gaps in service.  This program allows our board the time and ability to work with a Strategic Planner to modify our plan to address those gaps.
