Call for Faculty Proposals: Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo Competitive Grants
From the Vice President for Institutional Advancement
The Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo is now accepting letters of intent (LOI) for its 2014 competitive grant cycle. The LOI process is the first step in the Community Foundation’s competitive grant cycle; it allows the grant review committee to determine if a project merits further consideration. The foundation typically receives up to 200 letters of intent from which an average of 20 are selected for funding. This will be the only competitive grant opportunity in 2014. Applicants will receive grant outcome notification in mid-June.
Buffalo State faculty members are invited to submit ideas for proposals to their academic deans by noon Friday, January 17. Each dean will forward one recommendation to Susanne Bair, vice president for institutional advancement, who with Provost Dennis Ponton and Associate Vice President for Development Mary Dwyer will decide which project or program to advance. The faculty member whose suggestion is chosen will be notified on Tuesday, January 21. The letter of inquiry must be submitted by Monday, February 3.
LOI proposals must address at least one of the following objectives listed under the Community Foundation’s four focus areas:
