INNOVATION GRANT PROGRAM
The I’m Still Here Foundation launched its Innovation Grant Program by extending an invitation to care partners, families, private and community groups, and organizations to provide a Letter of Interest for its upcoming grant opportunity. The Foundation was pleased to receive many very interesting and innovative project proposals. The Grant Committee completed the initial screening process, narrowed the applicant field, and selected 7 candidates to move forward by submitting full applications.
Each application will be assessed to ensure:
- that it meets ISH principles,
- that it creates a close link between program content and cognitive abilities of Persons Living With Dementia,
- that it is well planned and clearly targeted to needy populations,
- that funding is optimized for direct impact.
The Foundation offers individualized advice to those preparing submissions, as well as to successful grantees. Program successes and positive innovations will be celebrated and shared publicly in an open-source fashion to ensure maximum program impact.
Final proposal applications are due before midnight on April 15, 2021, and the Grant Committee will announce all winners by or on May 1, 2021.
The I’m Still Here Foundation would like to extend a THANK YOU to everyone that provided a Letter of Interest. We appreciate your commitment to enhance the lives of Persons Living With Dementia.
