Grassroots Hurricane Relief Fund
Request for Proposals
November 1, 2012
We hope that this finds you and your family, friends, and loved ones healthy and safe, and recovering from the effects of this terrible storm.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which has devastated much of the tri-state area, North Star Fund created a Grassroots Hurricane Relief Fund to help the most vulnerable residents and communities in our region recover. We encourage grassroots organizations and activists who are aiding disenfranchised families and communities cope with this horrible disaster to apply for this special funding.
While North Star Fund’s activist led grantmaking model focuses on the five boroughs, for this special initiative we want to be there for organizers and activists in New Jersey, Long Island and Connecticut as well. It is a moment that we must think and act as a region. Please help us spread the word by forwarding this email to any groups in the tri-state area you think may qualify and need help.
For more information on the guidelines for this fund, and how to apply, visit our website at www.northstarfund.org/HurricaneSandy.
