Applications Are Open Through April 7
San Antonio-area nonprofits in need of structural improvements can apply now through April 7 to receive a 2017 Facility Grant worth up to $100,000 from Silver & Black Give Back. Applications are available to youth-serving nonprofits, and one organization could receive the entire $100,000 allotment, set to be awarded in July.
Since 2014, SBGB Facility Grants have contributed resources for nonprofits to continue providing services through hot summers, helped sites meet building safety codes, and funded ADA equipment for ability-inclusive programs. Past projects have included new HVAC systems, sun shades, gym soundproofing, refurbished outdoor courts, added learning spaces, and more.
Qualified nonprofits should visit SBGB.org to start the application process, which includes a project budget and three bids for services provided. To qualify for a 2017 Facility Grant, applicants must be designated as tax-exempt by the IRS and have a minimum 10-year lease or use agreement for the facility. Applications for the 2017 awards will be due on April 7.
