Event Grant Application
Dear Grant Applicant,
The Barbershop Harmony Society is committed to providing funding for eligible Youth-In-Harmony events in 2014. In order to help you bring exciting opportunities to the young people in your community who love to sing, all BHS sponsored youth workshops and camps are required to submit a grant application form.
Our application process for 2014 will be taking a new and exciting turn. Prior to 2013, we've accepted student surveys as collateral for payment after the close of the event, regardless of how many events were organized and how many students attended, making a forecast for budgeting virtually impossible. Additionally, this didn't give us the greatest understanding of the entire program being offered.
In today's world of philanthropy, it is very important for us to gather data points on how the grants are being spent so we can produce appropriate results back to the donor base. For this reason, we ask that you submit the details of your application to us via our website so that we can better document the data for future use.
Furthermore, we are fortunate to be experiencing many more start-up workshops and camps than we've ever seen before. Since we are managing a finite amount of money, we will need to become more judicious with the available funds. Therefore, we will be rewarding applications that are focusing on one of two major components: 1) Start-up workshops and camps 2) Continued growth within their program and community.
We encourage all camps and workshops to engage their community for grants that will better assist you with your operating expenses.
The 2014 YIH grant application information can be found below (or to the right if you wish to download). The submission deadline is November 1, 2013 and notifications of award will be sent by December 15, 2013.
Thank You for your dedication to Youth In Harmony,
Marty Monson Executive Director/CEO
