Paddle Antrim’s Ripple Effect mini-grant program is funded from a portion of income earned through classes and events to support other community groups whose values, goals and desired impacts align with ours. The total amount of the grants we award will vary from year to year. We award $1,000 – $3,000 per grant cycle (Fall and Spring). Our Board will use its discretion to make modest and meaningful gifts generally between $200 – $2,000. Each application will be evaluated on its merit and prudent use of funds.
Eligible applicants for Ripple Effect grants include:
Examples of projects we might consider funding include:
Application and Award Process
Applicants must complete a Grant Application Form.
All applications should be sent to Paddle Antrim by email at email@example.com. All grants must be for a single project or program. Repeat requests will be considered on their individual merits. Decisions will be made by the Paddle Antrim Board.
The Paddle Antrim Board of Directors will review Ripple Effect grant applications. A notification letter will be sent to all successful applicants within 60 days of the grant application deadline. Any requested changes in the project after funding is awarded must be addressed and approved by the Paddle Antrim Executive Director.
All grantees that receive an award must complete Paddle Antrim’s “Financial and Final Report Form”. Awardees must also submit a resolution of support from their governing body with the Final Report.” Noncompliance with the terms of payment process and grant will render grantee ineligible to receive funds and ineligible for future Paddle Antrim Ripple Effect grants. All requests for funds must be submitted no later than one month after the project has been completed. Grant funds must be used within twelve months after the grant is awarded. Any publicity for grant events or projects should include mention of Paddle Antrim per the communication conditions provided in the grant award letter.
