Yes, Glimmer|Austin is seeking to award grants to nonprofit organizations that are tackling poverty-related issues within their communities.
In addition to funding, Glimmer seeks to offer or introduce professional mentorship opportunities, as well as fund suitable trainings and workshops for those partner organizations that are awarded grants.
Glimmer|Austin offers three types of grants:
- Early Stage, Seed grants: These are one-year grants of up to $20,000 invested in startup and/or early-stage nonprofits who have shown potential and momentum and are looking for funding and support to get off the ground or expand. Equally this funding is available for new programs within established organizations.
- Growth grants: This is a new area for Glimmer|Austin. They are looking to identify those leaders and programs that have the capacity to grow and need resources to do so. In addition to funding, Glimmer seeks to offer or introduce professional mentorship opportunities, as well as fund suitable trainings and workshops.
- Strategic Grants: These are less frequent, usually larger, multi-year grants that are usually made in conjunction with Donor Partners who co-fund the grant.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 1-Oct-21.
