To Spokane Disc Association members and friends,
I just spoke with Tony Nercessian - Executive Director of the Spokane Parks Foundation. She told me that we got the grant
for Trail Improvements etc. at High Bridge Park DGC.
We were awarded $4,815.00.
This is the full amount that we asked for. My impression was that not all of the organizations submitting grant proposals were fully funded. She said that only 2 of the 29 grants submitted were considered to be excellently written and ours was one of them. Kudos to Justin Shrack for writing an exceptional grant proposal.
Our club is blessed to have a number of active volunteers doing a variety of tasks. We will need you once again to implement this proposal. So, keep your gloves handy - work parties and dates will be forthcoming.
This has been a long process. Gordy and I were first approached by the Parks Foundation in 2009, following a Park Board meeting. Last year they didn't offer any grants. So, we agreed to submit one this year. This proposal must be implemented within a year from the time of the award announcement. Justin agreed to write it and a stand-out grant was put together and submitted on time.
Many thanks again to Justin and all who supported and aided in the process.
