What is the Bridges Incentive Grant Program?
The program was established to recognize and support local and district incentives that would build a bridge between the Daughters of Penelope and the communities we live in, while promoting the ideals of the Daughters of Penelope through community service and family excellence.
The Foundation will recognize a select number of exemplary programs/projects that benefit a local qualified 501(c)3 organization within your chapter or district area. The chapters and districts selected as grant recipients will have a matching grant donation up to $250 donated by the Foundation in their name to their qualified 501(c)3 organization. All applicants not selected are encouraged to reapply for the awards in the next call for proposals.
Funding for the incentive grant comes from the Foundation directly. As the program expands, it is possible that there may be contributors who would like to fund the program. If so, the benefactor’s name would then be recognized in all printed materials associated with the Bridges Incentive Grant Program.
