Engagement Innovation Test Fund Offers Support for New Outreach Techniques
Deadline: January 7, 2004

The Common Assets Defense Fund (<a href="></a>), a multi-disciplinary organization that seeks to educate the American public about rapidly diminishing public assets and defend those assets from misuse, privatization, and destruction, and the General Service Foundation, which supports grantmaking programs in international peace/human rights, reproductive health and rights, and western water, have joined to establish the Engagement Innovation Test Fund.

The fund is seeking proposals for creative efforts to engage or recruit new members and activists in the work of a public interest organization while educating the public about the organization’s mission. The fund will test a number of recruiting techniques from a variety of different organizations and movements and share the lessons learned. The goal is to use a limited investment in a six-month test effort to guide foundations and nonprofits in their investments in engagement activities.

Grants of between $3,000 and $6,000 for a short-term project (six months or less) are competitively available to public charities that qualify under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and wish to undertake a project with replicable results.

For complete program information and application guidelines, see the Common Assets Web site.
