2016 Grant Information
This year's workshop will be posted online on January 11, 2016 and due by January 29, 2016!
Every year, Speedway Children's Charities hosts a mandatory grant workshop to answer your questions associated with our Partner and Founders grant applications. Our hope is all organizations that attend our workshop will leave with a better understanding of the Speedway Children's Charities grant application, process, and requirements.
Organizations interested in applying for the Speedway Children's Charities Partner and Founders grants must have an individual from their organization complete the online workshop presentation and questionnaire at their convenience in order to be considered for a 2016 grant. Organizations that did not submit a completed questionnaire by the January 29, 2016 deadline will not be eligible to submit a grant for the fiscal year 2016.
If you would like to be added to our database to receive updates regarding the SCC Grant process, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 817-215-8421.
**All grant inquiries must be submitted in writing - no phone calls regarding grant applications will be returned**
