Charitable community organizations that provide services to underserved and marginalized people in DeKalb County are encouraged to apply for a Promise Grant (Beca “Promisa”). Deadline to apply for funding is Nov. 15. Applications and grant guidelines can be found online at dekalbccf.org/promisegrants.

Promise Grants provide support to charitable organizations addressing the needs of the underserved and often dismissed populations in DeKalb County. The purpose of the program is to inspire, educate and empower individuals who may experience extraordinary challenges due to their ethnicity, immigration status and abilities.

Support for this grant program comes from two funds at the DeKalb County Community Foundation: The Promise Fund/El Fondo de la Promesa inspires the community to build leadership skills and empower the underserved population within DeKalb County and The Wiegele Family Early Childhood Literacy Fund supports early childhood literacy for underserved populations with very young children.
