RSF Seed Fund open for applications; deadline March 15th
January 30, 2013
We love our Seed Fund, it’s small and mighty like us. The RSF Seed Fund provides grants from $500 – $5,000 to projects that provide innovative solutions to further the field of social finance or address issues in one of our three focus areas. Although the grants are small, they make a large impact on the projects they support by providing essential start-up capital. March 15th marks the deadline to submit applications for the 2013 Seed Fund.
The Seed Fund is our only active discretionary grantmaking program here at RSF. The fund is advised by a rotating group of RSF staff members who review the proposals and then decide which projects will receive grants. Staff members enjoy a chance to participate in the grantmaking process and their diverse professional backgrounds and expertise ensure that we have a fresh perspective in each grant cycle.
We have been able to make $12,500 in grants annually thanks to contributions from RSF’s donor community. To help RSF continue to operate the Seed Fund, you can make a donation by visiting: rsfsocialfinance.org/services/giving/donate-now/
