The Community Foundation of DeKalb County is accepting grant proposals for local literacy projects.

Requests are due Aug. 1-29. A total of $4,000 is available for grants. Attached is a listing of the grants that the fund has awarded from 2008-2013. Most grants are in the $500 range with some lower and a few higher, so please base your proposal off of this.

Grants will be awarded from the foundation’s Literacy Fund, established by members of the Mother Goose on the Loose Literacy Giving Circle. Grants will focus on programs that contribute to the skill development of lifelong learners in DeKalb County, including adults’ and children’s learning opportunities.

Charitable organizations that provide literacy programs are invited to submit one-page request letters describing the programs for which they seek funding. Each letter should include a specific dollar request. Giving circle members will vote on the proposals that will receive funding. Grants will be announced in late September.
