2020 wrwf grant recipients  announced

Thank you to all WRWF members who voted in this year’s funding process – your voice is how these decisions happen! Here are the results of your votes.

In 2020, full Grant requests will be awarded to 12 non profits; the remaining funds will be divided equally between the 5 unfunded grantees. Given the stress that the COVID 19 outbreak is placing on our community, the Board has voted to award all 2020 grants as unrestricted funds. While many of our grantees may still use the funds for the purpose requested, the Board felt it best at this unprecedented moment in time, to give WRWF’s non profit partners the flexibility to decide the best use of our support to meet their organization’s mission.

In prior years, grantees were funded in order of votes received. When the next grant request was not able to be fully funded, a partial grant was awarded to that one non profit with the next highest vote total. This year, the Board voted to revise this policy: now, rather than awarding a single partial grant, the remaining funds will be evenly distributed among the unfunded grantees. This revision honors the time and resources that our grant finalists spend applying for a WRWF grant and presenting to our membership.
