Just in case you’re a Dallas County children’s nonprofit that’s been in operation for at least three years, September is going to be the beginning of a wonderful fundraising journey.
Despite COVID developments, 2022 Crystal Charity Ball Chair Susan Farris and CCB Charity Selection Chair Suzy Gekiere are staying the course for the 2022 beneficiary selection process that begins Wednesday, September 1. That’s the day when the applications go online.
While it will give you the opportunity to check out the requirements in applying for one of the grants, it will be just the first step. Next on the calendar will be an orientation session at a time and place TBD.
Then it’s a rush to fill out the application by the Friday, October 15, deadline. All applications must be in the CCB offices by noon … no later. (Hint: Since the mail delivery has been a bit challenging, why not hand-deliver your application to the CCB office at 3838 Oak Lawn Avenue, Suite L150?)
From there it’s a wait-and-cross-your fingers as the CCB committees’ vetting process gets underway. There are those who will swear it’s as tough as an IRS audit, but it’s also amazing how many first-timers make it to the finish line. And in this case, those will be announced Thursday, February 3.
