In September 2012 DFW added a sustained program grant to support programs featured in the past. We will provide a 3-year grant for $15,000 each year (total $45,000) to a previously featured program. These programs have been vetted by the Program Selection Team and are required to submit follow-up reports each year prior to receiving funding for the next year.

Member Choice Funding
DFW members vote to award grant funding of up to $30,000 to one of three vetted programs, after our grant and reserve obligations are met. Our monthly Featured and Sustained Programs grants are the TOP priority prior to funding other types of grants. Our goal is to build a reserve fund to meet future grant obligations in the event that monthly net donations are not sufficient. Once excess funds up to $30,000 have been accrued in addition to our reserve, members will be given an opportunity to vote on a Member Choice Funding grant. Please look for more information in 2013 - to be posted on the DFW website, Facebook, Twitter and in newsletters.
