Nonprofits offer best ideas to make life better for all

September 15, 2010

March 15 and September 15 have always been big days in the Community Foundation calendar, because that’s when we see the final proposals for two rounds of competitive grantmaking to our great nonprofit partners. This is the place where the planning and proposing ends and the evaluation begins, as our Program staff reads through every submission.

We know that we cannot drive positive change in greater Birmingham without our nonprofit partners, so it’s always exciting to see their latest ideas and consider how they help to move us forward on the priorities our community has identified for itself.

When our office door closes at 4:30 p.m. today and when the postal service stops stamping September 15, the end comes for another grant cycle. But what great beginnings are in store!
