The Dralla Foundation review board revised the criteria for review of grant requests in June 2011. The board agreed that funding should go toward events held by organizations, according to a press release. “Our criteria for review should be based on the following outcome: The participants in these events go to bed at the end of the day saying, ‘That was the best day of my life,’” Allard said.
This year, the Dralla Foundation will also be implementing changes in their grant review period. There will be one review period per year. The deadline for submission is May 1; grants will be awarded in mid July.
Grant request forms can be found on the Dralla website at www.dralla.org or requested by contacting Jennifer Buehler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
