The Alaska Community Foundation (ACF) is partnering with the Alaska Children’s Trust to launch the Teen Suicide Prevention Grant Program. This new grant program is aimed at supporting Alaska tribes, schools, nonprofits, churches, and local governments in implementing and improving teen suicide prevention across the state.
The Alaska Community Foundation seeks applications for projects that will directly enhance community based efforts to prevent teen suicide.Grants will fund activities that encourage Alaskans to take responsibility for preventing teen suicide, give Alaskans the tools they need to respond to teens at risk of suicide, and encourage Alaskans to work together and collaborate on this important issue. Organizations may be awarded grants in amounts varying between $2,000 and $5,000. Matching funds are encouraged but not required.
Applications are accepted from qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit or equivalent organizations located in Alaska. Equivalent organizations may include tribes, schools, churches, local government agencies and programs.
Application Deadline: 9:00 p.m. on November 17, 2012.
Apply today by visiting ACF online or by calling (907) 334-6700.
