Chicago Community Grant Program Application - Spring 2019
The Chicago Community Grant Program Salon is a semi annual dinner occurring in the Spring and Fall. Prospective grantees submit proposals to us 1 months prior to the Salon, and submissions are reviewed by the Selection Committee. Among all the applicants, 4 are selected to give a 10 minute presentation at the Salon. A representative must be available to present at the Salon in order to be eligible for the grant, on the evening of May 15th, 2019

This program engages grassroots programs being run in Chicago, or by Chicagoans. Microgrants will help fund community projects that engage residents, produce direct action, create collaborations between different groups, utilize several of the 10 Burning Man Principles, and creatively tackle problems. We are looking to fund programs that have a clear civic and service-oriented goal, and are direct in their ability to work with and create positive change for the greater Chicago community. Microgrants can be used for sustainable projects such as a neighborhood garden project, purchasing extra supplies for a children’s art program, helping fund a community library, or your unique idea!

The Salon is open to the public, and a $5-$10 sliding scale donation is requested. After hearing the 4 presentations, attendees will vote for the project they believe most deserves to be awarded a micro-grant of up to $1500. After the voting, everyone gathers together to eat dinner and connect with other amazing Chicagoans who care about their community. After dinner, the votes are tallied and the grant recipient is announced.

Deadline for Submission: Sunday April 9th, 11:59pm CST
