GOING FAST: A FEW SPOTS LEFT ON OUR GRANTS REVIEW COMMITTEE

Help SE Uplift incubate great community ideas by participating on our Grants Review Committee. Stipends available for youth and adults, plus dinner is on us!

Our grant review criteria is driven by SEUL’s ongoing efforts toward equity through our DEIA commitments. As a member of the grant review committee, you will exercise leadership and help SE Uplift award projects that reflect a diverse, equitable, inclusive and accessible future for southeast Portland.

  • We are asking for a time commitment of 10 to 25 hours to review and score the grant applications. Small grants will require more time than the DEIA Capacity Building grants to number and score.
  • Grants will be available for review starting January 13th – after we meet as a group to divide grant applications.
  • Attend two 2 hour meeting:
    • Thursday, January 13th, 2021 (time tba) – the group will come together and get an overview of the review process, we will talk over scoring sheets and distribute the applications.
    • Thursday, February 3rd, 2021 (time tba) – the group will come together to discuss and make final award decisions.

SE Uplift is able to provide a $50 giftcard for your participation ($75 for youth)
