(3) Taproot Foundation Invites Nonprofit Organizations to Apply for Service Grants (Deadline: December 1, 2008*)

The Taproot Foundation specializes in awarding capacity-building service grants to other nonprofit organizations. The foundation seeks to provide high- potential nonprofits with the tools and services necessary to maximize the impact of their work.

Unlike traditional foundations that make cash grants, Taproot makes grants of high-quality consulting services. The foundation packages teams of business professionals in pro bono marketing, information technology, human resources, and strategy management service grants, each of which is valued at between $25,000 and $70,000. Types of service grants include annual report design, brochure design, brand strategy, donor database development, advanced and basic Web site design, strategy management, and strategic human resources.

To be eligible for a service grant, an organization must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization or operate under the fiscal sponsorship of a 501(c)(3) and be headquartered and provide direct benefits to residents of Boston, Chicago, New York City, Seattle, the San Francisco Bay Area, or Washington, D.C.

Interested nonprofits should visit the Taproot Foundation Service Grants Web site for further information and an online application form.

*Not sure why I just received this RFP today if the deadline was December 1st – something worth looking into if you’re interested in applying…
