YVCF Grants Q & A
Q: Will my Letter of Intent for the Community Grants consideration reach YVCF's Donor Advised Fund holders?
A: Yes, all Letters of Intent received by YVCF for the Community Grants cycle will be shared with Donor Advised Fund holders, even if your organization is not invited to submit a full application.
Q: My organization has received funding from YVCF and/or Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation for the past three years. Can I still submit a Letter of Intent for this year's grants cycle?
A: Yes. Our request for organizations to 'sit a year out' of the grants application process will only begin from three years of this year's awards. So if your organization receives grants from the YVCF Community Grants cycle in 2012, 2013, and 2014, we ask that you take a year off from applying in 2015.
