Just a quick heads up on the deadline for the Charlotte Martin Foundation, which operates in the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska.
The final deadline for 2015 is Oct. 1.
The foundation helps youths in the areas of athletics, culture, and education. Priority goes to sports programs and equipment for both boys and girls in underserved areas. Girls’ sports programs (ages 6 to 18) also receive special consideration. The Foundation provides grants to organizations that increase opportunities for minority youth with an emphasis on supporting organizations that value diversity, as represented by diverse leadership and staff.
Grants are also provided to organizations that address climate change by focusing on the need to enhance the biodiversity of wildlife and habitat in the face of the widespread effects of a warming planet. Grants in both program areas range up to $25,000.
