Soroptimist International of Davis is accepting applications from local nonprofit and charitable organizations for grant funding for 2013. The maximum amount to apply for has increased to $1,500. The deadline for submission is Jan. 11.
Soroptimists will judge applications on: how well the project responds to the needs of the Davis community; how many people are served by the project; how deep an impact the project has on an individual level; and whether the project costs are reasonable.
Previous recipients are eligible to reapply, and organizations that have not sought funding in the past are encouraged to submit an application. This is a competitive grant process.
