A philanthropy policy was established by the MVQG Board in 2010 which enables the Mid-Valley Quilt Guild to offer grants to community organizations/groups that: “preserve the quilting heritage for future generations by promoting the art of quilting, sharing knowledge and accomplishments, inspiring creative excellence, encouraging fellowship and service to our community.”
The philanthropy committee is currently asking our members to recommend and provide the contact information for any organizations/groups who fit the above criteria and might be interested in applying for a 2020 Mid-Valley Quilt Guild grant. Please send the name of the organization/group, contact person, and address to: firstname.lastname@example.org or MaryAnn Huggins, 1915 Reading Ct. S.E., Salem, OR 97302. A cover letter with an application will be sent out to all interested organizations/groups by the end of February. All grant applications must be received no later than April 15, 2020, and the grants are awarded in June, 2020. Additionally, it is no longer necessary for the interested organization/group to be a tax exempt 501(c)(3) to be eligible for grant funds.
