Since the inception of the King William Association Grant Program in 2001, KWA has donated over $500,000 to 50 neighborhood nonprofit organizations for a wide variety of projects. The source of this funding is our annual King William Fair. In the early years of the program, KWA helped Bonham Academy library, Brackenridge HS band, Page Middle School and SAY Si. We continue to help these fine organizations plus others such as ArtSmart, Jump-Start, Magik Theatre and The Cannoli Fund. The outcome of our generosity is making a significant difference in our lives and the lives of our children and our pets.
The application is a reflection of the Grant Program structure. The applicant completes the form to prove their nonprofit status, identify their Board of Directors, provide their annual budget, and contact information, and, if applicable, provide a letter signed by the school principal agreeing to host their project. The project narrative needs to convince the reader the project will achieve its goal by describing the experience, training, tools and talent available for the project. The narrative also needs to provide evidence of a strong connection between the organization and the KWA Charter; i.e., “preserve and promote.”
