Manson Giving Great Grants
Manson Students Supporting Social Justice in their schools and community
Application Opens December 15, 2018
Application Deadline: February 4, 2019
Created by longtime Manson residents Jack and Gale Courtney, the Manson G3 Program gives sophomore, junior and senior class officers at Manson High School the unique opportunity to make their schools a better place by Giving Great Grants!
With grant funding from the Manson G3 Fund at the Community Foundation of North Central Washington, students this year will provide funds for social justice projects at the elementary, middle, and high schools in Manson and the greater Manson community. Class officers can receive applications from students, partnerships between students and mentor teachers, classes, and school clubs for projects that would make their school and community a better place for everyone. Example projects could look like anti-bullying or community-building efforts, conflict resolution, partnering with a local service club, putting on an inclusive community or school event, using arts-based inquiry to explore an issue of social justice, and any other idea to make a positive social impact.
After thoughtful review and site visits, the student class officers make the difficult decisions on where to place the funding. Staff members from the Community Foundation assist in all aspects of the program. Students learn the value of giving, volunteering and making a difference. They learn valuable leadership skills and a thing or two about their schools!
Manson G3 awards are specifically for programs that support social justice. Any student, teacher, administrator or volunteer in the Manson Schools may complete an application. The project, program or event can be student-led, a partnership between students and mentor teachers, or carried out by a class or club.
If you received an MG3 grant last year, you must complete a grant report form in order to be eligible for this year’s cycle.
All grant recipients are required to submit a Grant Report 45 days after the close of the grand period indicated on the Grant Agreement. Future grant requests will not be considered if reports on previously funded projects are outstanding.
