Decatur Craft Beer Festival seeking proposals for local nonprofits that need fundingPhoto by Jeremy Buckmaster
The Decatur Craft Beer Festival committee is accepting proposals from Decatur-based nonprofit organizations to be considered for funding from proceeds of the October 2018 festival, a city newsletter announced.
Each year, the committee donates 75 percent of festival profits to designated projects.
The committee is looking to fund projects that contribute to the quality of life in Decatur and do not have ongoing fundraising associated with them. The committee prefers to use its funds to jump-start a special project and provide seed capital to get a focused activity off the ground, the city newsletter said.
The grant application for 2018 is available here, or applicants can email email@example.com to request a copy.
Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 6 to the Community and Economic Development department, located on the second floor of Decatur City Hall. Organizations must be based within the city of Decatur to be considered.
