Join a Grant Review Team

GiVE 365 members are given the opportunity to further engage in the grant making process by reviewing applications with a team and making thoughtful and objective recommendations based on grant criteria. Specifically, team members are asked to:

  • Fill out grant review team interest form online
  • Be current members of GiVE 365
  • Read, sign, and adhere to conflict of interest and confidentiality documents
  • Attend one orientation and grant review meeting (as listed below)
  • Review all assigned grant proposals and score them objectively according to criteria given.

In December, members will be invited to sign-up for grant review.
