To ensure that we fund neighborhood priorities, a Grant Making Committee of Cleveland and East Cleveland residents reviews all grant applications and makes final decisions about which proposals are funded and at what level.
Current committee members select new members from all areas of Cleveland and East Cleveland. Committee members serve three-year terms.
The role of the Grant Making Committee member is to read, review, interview, and make funding decisions with other members of the Grant Making Committee. Committee members meet in the fall and in the spring to review grant proposals. Committee members work in small teams with three other Grant Making Committee members to review and interview proposals and to make funding recommendations to the entire Grant Making Committee and, with the entire Grant Making Committee, make final funding decisions.
