Apply for a GALs Grant Now
Gilroy– January 2023: The Gilroy Assistance League is accepting grant requests beginning January 5 through February 24, 2023. Each year, Gilroy Assistance League accepts grant requests that will benefit youth organizations, programs, and schools. Any South Santa Clara County youth-related organization or school is eligible to apply for a grant. Funds will be distributed in late April 2023.
The Gilroy Assistance League is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the welfare and development of youth in South Santa Clara County through their annual grant cycle. Proceeds from their Annual Home + Garden Tour & Boutique fund these grants. Since 1993, GALs has distributed over $360,000 in grants to local programs.
According to Gilroy Assistance League President, Lori Kent, “In 2022, the Gilroy Assistance League was thrilled to award over $21,000 in grants to eight very-deserving organizations. But the news gets better… in 2023 we are increasing our giving by 50%. We’re projecting to grant over $31,000! That’s quite an increase and all due to the incredible generosity of our Annual Home & Garden Tour supporters, sponsors, and participants.”
“We’re calling on youth organizations throughout South Santa Clara County,” explains GALS Grants Committee Chair Paula Goldsmith. “Think of the wish list you have for your organization. Is limited funding keeping your goals from becoming reality? Gilroy Assistance League grants can provide youth-oriented organizations with an opportunity to fund an existing need or expand outreach or services. If your mission meets our criteria, please consider applying.”
A formal grant request proposal must be completed and returned no later than Friday, February 24, 2023. Forms may be downloaded from the web site at www. gilroyassistanceleague.org.
