Civil Discourse Grant Program Open to Applications




Placer Community Foundation is accepting applications for grants that address Civil Discourse

Auburn, CA- When communicating your ideas with others, are there best practices to follow to create a civil discourse-a discussion that is both respectful and productive? Do you have a plan or ideas for programming or activities aimed at finding common ground for the greater good?

Placer Community Foundation's vision is a healthy, connected community and, with that in mind, the Foundation has created a grant program intended to promote civil conversations that include all points of view about issues that matter-that support the societal good.

The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting programming/activities that model good civil discourse and that educate students and/or the public about issues pertaining to free speech, tolerance, and inclusion. This grant opportunity is open to all segments of the community, but must be managed by a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization or have a fiscal sponsor with written agreement. Grants of up to $5,000 are available.

"A cornerstone of our country and key topic in our educational, political, and social discussion of the day is how best to have a civil conversation about difficult topics," stated Ken Larson, a Placer Community Foundation Board Member, "Placer Community Foundation is interested in advancing ideas on how to have robust, honest, frank and constructive dialogue and deliberation that seeks to build a thriving community and advance the public interest for all in Placer County."

To learn more about Placer Community Foundation's Civil Discourse Grant Program, visit http://placercf.org/civil-discourse-grant-program-open-to-applications/ or contact Eileen Speaker at (530) 885-4920. Please note that applications must be relevant to Placer County, and the programming/activity must occur in Placer County. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on February 28, 2018.
