Angeles Chapter Grant General Guidelines

SIERRA CLUB ANGELES CHAPTER — NOT CONSERVATION

These instructions apply to Angeles Chapter requests for funds that do not qualify as conservation (outings, leadership development, etc.) and without a previously established fund. The Angeles Chapter requires that your entity has Chapter Executive Committee authorization before submitting a grant request to ACF.

Past examples include the chapter library, first aid/cpr training, chapter history committee and inner city outings.

Provide the following information to ACF:

  1. Brief description of the project (no more than one page)
  2. Explanation of how the project will support the goals of the Sierra Club/Angeles Chapter
  3. Explanation of how the project fits within the funding priorities of the Angeles Chapter Foundation
  4. The date the Angeles Chapter Executive Committee authorized your funding application.
  5. Budget:
    1. Total cost of the project
    2. Amount requested from the Angeles Chapter Foundation (ACF)
    3. Detailed description of how the ACF funds will be spent – staffing, materials, equipment, marketing, training, contracts, etc.)
  6. Plans to recognize ACF as a funding source
  7. Plans to report back to ACF about project results – accomplishments, successes, lessons learned, etc.
  8. Timeline:
    1. Project timeline – include a list of actions and who is responsible for ensuring each action is accomplished; provide specific dates if possible
    2. When are funds needed?
  9. Contact information
    1. Name, phone number and email address of person(s) who can best answer questions about the request for funds
    2. Name, phone number and email address of person(s) responsible for overseeing project implementation and accounting for funds.

Note that normally the ACF operates on a reimbursement basis.  Publications need prior approval to assure compliance with federal regulations.
