Community Discretionary

We are proud to announce The Resident Advancement Committee, a group of 10 residents that will oversee the Foundation’s community discretionary budget.

The Resident Advancement Committee is an equitable and inclusive method for residents of the Saint Luke’s footprint to impact their community by reviewing grant applications and awarding funding for initiatives in the neighborhoods in which they reside.

The RAC will award discretionary-level funding ($15,000 and less) for community-centered projects and initiatives.

The grant deadlines for 2020 are:

March 6 (decision at RAC meeting late March)
May 1 (decision at RAC meeting late May)
July 3 (decision at RAC meeting late July)
September 4 (decision at RAC meeting late September)
