Grantees have indicated how valuable it is to bring WKKF grantees together to learn, deepen relationships and develop strategy. Thus, the New Mexico Impact Fund’s Convenings Grants will provide NM grantees support for strategic convenings with other WKKF grantees and partners. Awarded grantees will be responsible for for defining the convening purpose, developing the agenda, and fully managing all aspects of the convening. Applicants must demonstrate in their proposal how the convening will help advance WKKF priorities. Funds could be used to pay for convening related expenses such as facility fees, meals, participant travel expenses, and speaker fees. All activities must be strictly nonpartisan, in accordance with IRS regulations.
The New Mexico Impact Fund Convenings Grant will open on 2/6/18, with applications due by midnight on 2/20/18. Awards will be made on 2/23/18 and processed the week of 2/26/18. Projects will close on 4/30/18. Questions? Click here for the New Mexico Impact Fund online application instructions.
