In keeping with our mission, the Society for Community Work gives grants to organizations in the community who provide services in keeping with our values. The SCW Community Grants Committee is responsible for choosing these organizations.
From Thad Smith, Chair, 2022 SCW Community Grants Committee

The 2022 SCW Community Grant Committee includes Nancy Buffum, Larry Danos, Daniel Jackoway, Joan Rost, and Thad Smith. I want to thank each and every member of the 2022 SCW Community Grants Committee for agreeing to participate in this work. Each member brought important skills and knowledge that made this year such a success. I am particularly proud of our efforts to locate and support organizations with smaller budgets where our grants make more of an impact.
In the current schedule, the Committee receives grant requests in the early fall and the team will approve proposed grants in October or November. The grants will be distributed the following year, usually starting in January.
Every organization, which applies for a grant must provide certain documentation:
proof of their nonprofit status,
annual budget and expenditure reports, and
annual report or a detailed description of their activities.
