The creative commitment of Applegaters to make a difference in their community has been on full display during AGA’s 2021 Momentum Grant process. Momentum Grants are AGA’s way of supporting community-driven projects that enhance the economic, environmental, and social vitality of the Applegate Valley. This year, requests for funds exceeded our capacity by more than 400%. AGA has committed $5,000 from our Ford Institute for Community Building grant and will try to find other ways to support projects we are unable to fund because of limited resources.
One way we can do this is with your support. This year for the first time we are asking for donations to fund more of these worthwhile community projects. You can simply donate to the Momentum Grant program and we will apply your donation to the highest ranked project(s) that didn’t receive funding. If you prefer, you can select a specific project from this list to fund. In either case, 100% of donations will go to grantees.
To donate to a specific project send an email to email@example.com to indicate the project and amount you are contributing through our contribution options.
Thank you for supporting the tremendous work of our Momentum Grant partners!
