Multicultural Participation Committee (WTAMPC)

2004 Grant Application Form

The Multicultural Participation Committee’s (MPC) objective is to ensure that the opportunity to experience the educational, health, and other lifetime benefits of tennis is available to a diverse population of players, volunteers and professionals. Grants are available to help nonprofit organizations initiate or expand their tennis activities that will increase minority participation.

Grant Guidelines:

· Grant amounts generally range from $200 to $1000. Introductory summer programs should try to limit their requests to $500. Year-round developmental programs will need more money due to indoor court costs.

· For requests over $500, grant amounts should be matched by at least 20% of funds from other sources.

· The program must be nonprofit.

· Grant money is not to be used to reimburse regular staff or any person on full-time salary with the organization submitting the request. The first half of the grant amount will be issued in April. The second half will be distributed after a program evaluation with receipts is submitted. Unused funds must be returned to WTAMPC.

· WTAMPC encourages grant requests for both start-up and continuing programs for adults or youth.

· Funds may be used for instructor costs (maximum of $20.00/hour for head instructor, $12.00/hour for assistants), reasonable publicity costs, and other costs, such as court fees or balls, relating to the program. Grant funds should not be used for items such as permanent facilities upgrades or banquets

· Availability of funds varies each year depending on the Committee’s budget, the merit and clarity of the description of the program for which funds are requested, and the number and extent of the requests.

· Grant applications must be forwarded to the WTAMPC at the address below by March 1, 2004. Applications received by March 1 will be processed first. Requests after March 1st will be processed provided funds are still available.
