Catalytic Grant: District Staffing Kickstarter

Ongoing professional staff is the single most catalytic way for districts to improve programming and increase membership, business benefits and revenue. To help Venture Portland achieve its strategic goal of all districts having at least 10 weekly hours of staffing by 2020, Venture Portland is offering Catalytic grant funds to invest in first-time, ongoing, professional staff, or permanently increase the hours of a current staffer working less than 10 hours per week.

 

Applicants may apply for up to $2,000 for seed funding to invest in first-time, professional staff working a minimum of 10 hours per week or increasing the hours of a current staffer working less than 10 hours per week. Grant funds CANNOT be used for seasonal staffing, additional staffing or administrative staffing.
