The Community Foundation of the Ozarks is now accepting applications for the third year of the Glenstone Square Big Idea Program. This is a program for CFO’s nonprofit agency partners in need of space and funding for special projects, initiatives, grant programs, or innovative ideas.
The Glenstone Square Big Idea Program is a grant of office space as well as funding. The selected agency will receive the use of a 1,000-square-foot office unit in the Glenstone Square Office Complex, on South Glenstone Avenue just north of Sunshine Street in Springfield, including utilities. One organization will receive this one-year grant to begin July 1, 2015. The opportunity is open to all nonprofit agency partners of the CFO.
The grant is valued at $18,000 – $14,000 in in-kind donations of office and utilities plus a $4,000 unrestricted grant for operations or innovations associated with the project.
