Ameriquest Offers After-School and Neighborhood Improvement Grant Program
Deadline: January 15, 2007

A program offered by Ameriquest Mortgage Company (<a href=""></a>) and its affiliate AMC Mortgage Services, Create Your Legacy is a grant program that encourages young people to develop projects to improve their after-school program and their neighborhood.

Each year, the Create Your Legacy program awards up to seventy-five grants of $15,000 each to nonprofit after-school programs to help fund projects to improve their programs and their neighborhoods.

The grant program encourages youth to learn about community service and teamwork while participating in the development of two Legacy Projects: a $10,000 project to improve their after-school program, services, or facility; and a $5,000 project to improve or beautify their neighborhood.

To be eligible for a Create Your Legacy grant, participating after-school programs must submit a short grant application and a video clearly describing the two Legacy Projects they propose. The Create Your Legacy projects must be planned and developed by the after-school program’s youth with the assistance of the program’s staff.

The grant program is open to after-school programs with current 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Eligible after-school programs should offer youth services that emphasize leadership training, mentoring, community service, academic enrichment, or the arts.

For a detailed program description and/or to download a Create Your Legacy grant application, visit the Ameriquest Cares Web site.
