Annual Grants

Annual Grants are awarded to deserving local charities once per calendar year. They are intended to provide organizations with financial assistance for general operational expenses during the coming year. For this reason, Annual Grants are dispersed as equal quarterly payments in March, June, September, and December. The application deadline for Annual Grants is February 1. Annual Grant Applicants will notification by letter of Clothes Less Traveled Board decision. Requests for annual funding must be resubmitted each year.

Note: Annual Grant recipients may not apply for additional Semi-Annual Grant funding during the calendar year for which they receive an Annual Grant, unless it is an emergency request.

Semi-Annual Grants

Alternatively, Clothes Less Traveled offers Semi-Annual Grants as one-time awards for specific events or project needs. We grant Semi-Annual funding twice a year in the Spring and Fall. Application deadlines are March 1 for Spring and September 1 for Fall. Applicants be notified by letter of the Clothes Less Traveled Board decision. Organizations may only receive one Semi-Annual Grant per calendar year.  If the organization is denied a Semi-Annual Grant in the Spring they may apply again in the Fall.
