Dear Liberation Tech Colleagues,
My much-loved client, CTK Foundation, will start accepting
applications from nonprofits for its “Heart & Soul” cash grants on
Monday, December 3rd.
Community TechKnowledge, the foundation's parent organization, is
oriented to nptech, so if your nonprofit is a technology assistance
provider, your application will be read by some kindred spirits.
As usual, the foundation isn’t interested in receiving a long grant
proposal with a lot of boilerplate; instead, they want each nonprofit
that applies to submit a short poem about its mission.
Poems can be written by the applicant organization’s constituents,
staff, board, or volunteers. It’s an opportunity to focus on what’s
unique and important to you about the organization.
The signature grant of this year’s cycle will be $10,000 in cash, plus
a professionally written and recorded song by the Grammy Award-winning
group, the original Blind Boys of Alabama.
The other grants are:
o $10,000 HHS grant — available to an Austin, Texas-area nonprofit
specializing in the provision of services to at risk children and
families — a gift from the Cipione Family Foundation.
o Two $5,000 grant awards to two nonprofits in the United States.
o Five $1,000 grant awards to Community TechKnowledge, Inc. customer
organizations attending the 2013 Outcomes Immersion Certification
o $20,000 in matching cash grants to nonprofits for CTK software purchases.
o Three autographed guitars: one by The Original Blind Boys of
Alabama, one by Los Lonely Boys, and one by Sunny Shipley.
