Important Information to Include in Your Grant Application

  1. Who are you?

    We want to know about you and your organization. Tell us how long your organization has existed, what your mission is, how you are funded, what services you provide and to how many people. We also want to know if people on your staff have special talents related to the project.

  2. What is your proposal?

    What is your project or program? How does it work and who will staff it? How will your proposal improve the health of children in southeast Alaska? How many children will be helped and how will you decide who participates? Have you done background research? Is there information which supports the likely positive effects of your project? Does the community support your proposal

  3. Financing

    Please let us know the total cost of the proposal; whether you have other funding sources and what expenses they cover; what the funds requested from the Crossett Fund are intended to cover (including a budget); and how you intend to make this project financially self-sustaining if it is ongoing.
