Basic information required: Contact Name, Affiliate, Complete Address, Phone, Email and Date of Training/Conference
Must be an Affiliate member in good standing.
Each year a set amount will be designated by the
current WVCA board to be given out for Affiliates to provide local training. A
maximum grant of $300.00 will be awarded to winning proposals. Funds will be
given out provided the WVCA budget allows. Educational grant allotment will be
reviewed at the end of WVCA Fiscal year.
A letter from the current WVCA Vice President
will be sent to each Affiliate President/Representative in good standing
inviting proposals for the educations grant.
Each proposal for funds should include who,
what, where. What are you needing the
funds for and how many anticipated volunteers/staff will be trained at the
workshop/presentation? You will also
need to support what are the other sources of revenue, and an estimated budget
for the event.
The WVCA board will review your proposal.
Recipients of funds will be chosen at WVCA board meetings (quarterly meetings),
and funds will be rewarded shortly thereafter.
Affiliates receiving funds will be required to
list WVCA as a sponsor in their brochure and any other marketing tools.
Recipient(s) will be asked to write a newsletter item for the WVCA quarterly
newsletter as well as any local opportunities. It will also become a feature in our annual report.
Affiliates that have been awarded a grant will
be eligible annually.
