Eastside Pathways is accepting grant proposals from Eastside Pathways Partners for the 2023 Bill Henningsgaard Fund for Children Grant now through February 15, 2023. The award amount is $10,000 and will be announced on March 31, 2023.
2023 Grant Focus: The purpose of the Bill Henningsgaard Fund for Children Grant 2023 is to assist in bettering the lives of, and creating opportunities for children, youth, and young adults, by improving community systems in the Bellevue and Lake Washington School Districts catchment areas. This year the goal of the grant is to financially support Eastside Pathways Partner(s) working to identify, address and take steps to dismantle racial inequities within their own systems or communities that marginalize children, youth, young adults, and families.
The grant will go to a partner who requests grant funding to directly address and dismantle one of the four types of racism (personal, interpersonal, institutional, and/or structural) within their own organization(s) and/or communities. Grant applications for projects that are altering their own internal systems or beliefs will be prioritized.
