The Get Grounded Foundation Announces Call for Spring 2018 Nonprofit Grant Applications
DENVER, March 26, 2018 – GroundFloor Media (GFM) and its sister agency, CenterTable, announced today a call for Spring 2018 grant applications by Denver-area nonprofits serving at-risk youth. Created in 2015 as the primary charitable giving arm of GroundFloor Media and its sister agency CenterTable, the 501(c)(3) provides one-year grants for new, entrepreneurial programs within an existing nonprofit that directly support at-risk or neglected youth between the ages of 3 and 15 in Denver.
Since its inception three years ago, The Get Grounded Foundation has awarded approximately $80,000 to a wide range of local organizations including the Autism Society of Colorado, The Bridge Project, CASA of Jefferson & Gilpin Counties, Child Advocates – Denver CASA, The Denver Children's Advocacy Center, the Denver Indian Family Resource Center, the ECDC – African Community Center of Denver, Mount Saint Vincent, PCs for People, Playworks Education Energized, PlatteForum, the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, Roots Elementary, Share Our Strength’s Cooking Matters Colorado, Tennyson Center for Children and Zuma’s Rescue Ranch.
The grant recipients were selected for their efforts in getting a new, innovative program off the “ground floor” in the area of child abuse and neglect, youth behavioral health or childhood hunger relief.
To apply for grant funding, visit the Get Grounded Foundation website at groundfloormedia.com/foundation. The deadline for submitting grant applications is 5:00 p.m. MT on Monday, April 30, 2018. A volunteer committee made up of individuals from GroundFloor Media, CenterTable and the Colorado foundation community will review all grant applications. Recipients will be announced in early June.
