Get Grounded Foundation Announces Call for 2016 Grant Applications

The Get Grounded Foundation announced today a call for 2016 grant applications by Denver-area nonprofits serving at-risk youth. Created last year as the primary charitable giving arm of GroundFloor Media, the 501c3 provides one-year community grants for new or expanded, innovative or entrepreneurial programs or projects within an existing, qualified nonprofit that directly support the healthy development of at-risk or neglected youth between the ages of 3 and 13 in the Denver Metro area.

To apply for grant funding, visit the Get Grounded Foundation website at http://www.groundfloormedia.com/foundation. The deadline for submitting grant applications is 5:00 p.m. MT on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. A volunteer committee made up of individuals from GroundFloor Media and the Colorado foundation community will review all grant applications for the 2016 awards. 

During its inaugural year, The Get Grounded Foundation received more than 20 grant applications, and a total of $15,000 was awarded to four programs including the Tennyson Center for Children, PlatteForum, Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, and the Denver Indian Family Resources Center. The programs were selected for their efforts in getting a new or innovative program off the “ground floor” in the area of child abuse and neglect, youth behavioral health or childhood hunger relief.
