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 to " 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 organization/groups who fit the above critieria and might be interested in applying for a 2023 Mid-Valley Quilt Guild grant. Please send the name of the organization/group contact person and address to: Cathie Head, 1194 35th Ave NW, Salem, Oregon, 97304.
A cover letter with an application will be sent out to all interested organizations/groups by the end of February, 2023. All grant applications must be received by no later than April 15, 2023, (No Exceptions). The grants will be awarded in June 2023. Additionally, it is no longer necessary for the interested organization/group to be a 501c(3) organization to apply for a grant.
