Now accepting applications for our 2011 Ambassador Grant(s)!

The Emily C. Specchio Foundation is calling all visionary youth in the NJ/NY area to apply for our 2011 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 April 1st.

What are we looking for?
The Emily C. Specchio Foundation is seeking young adults aged 18-25 living in the New Jersey/New York area 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.) in the New Jersey/New York area including The Emily C. Specchio annual “A Night with an Angel” banquet in May 2011. 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 2011 application, please visit our Ambassador page.
