The CTK Foundation is taking nominations for Heroes with a Heart to award over $17,000 in grant money. What’s the CTK Foundation? Well you may remember them from their Heart and Soul Grant poetry competition last March. My wife submitted an awesome poem in support of Epic Change and while she didn’t win, I was impressed with CTK’s creative approach to community to grant awards.
Now their back with asking for nominations to award a ”Heroes with a Heart” Grant to thank exemplary volunteers, changemakers, and community members for their hard work. There are three award categories.
- $15,000 for Three Heroes One Hero with a Heart from each of the three categories of Health and Human Social Service, Animal Rights and Environmental Protection and Arts and Literacy will be awarded $5,000 USD and a professionally produced video about their affiliated nonprofit for use in public awareness or education.
- $1,500 for One Hero The CTK Foundation will also be offering a $1,500 (USD) President’s Choice Award (the Susan Lee Winter Grant Award) for an individual working to provide creative and innovative approaches to HIV/AIDS education or prevention.
- Blogger’s Choice Award Lastly, there will be a Blogger’s Choice Award of $1,000 (USD). The CTK Foundation will choose a blogger (hopefully me) who will hand-pick one winner from any category.
