Now accepting applications for our 2013 Ambassador Grant(s)!

Published by admin under Uncategorized

The Emily C. Specchio Foundation is calling all visionary youth to apply for our 2013 Ambassador grant. This grant awards grants to young people with big ideas on how to give back – whether it be locally or internationally. All applications are due August 31st, 2013.

What are we looking for?
The Emily C. Specchio Foundation is seeking young adults with a clear vision for a community outreach project to be started/completed within a year of this grant. The project can be designed to help others either domestically or internationally.

How does the Ambassador program work?
The Emily C. Specchio Foundation is looking for inspired young people to embody our mission. The ambassador will clearly state to the Foundation their project goals and mission along with an estimated timeline and funds required. The Foundation will provide mentoring support to the ambassador to help set up a blog or website and fundraise for their cause. The ambassador must present their project ideas and progress at a minimum of three venues (schools, organizations, churches, etc.) including The Emily C. Specchio annual “A Night with an Angel” banquet in September 2014. The Foundation will award $1,000 to this year’s ambassador(s), and will match money raised by the Ambassador (up to $2,500) for one year 2 to 1.

For more information and the 2013 application, please visit our Ambassador page.

The full application can be downloaded here: ambassador application 2013

We look forward to reading all your great and inspirational ideas!
