Abortion Conversation Project

Support Mini-Grant Application Information

Fall 2013

 

The Abortion Conversation Project will consider small grants for projects in keeping with ACP’s mission to challenge the polarization that characterizes abortion conversation, lessen the stigmatization of abortion, and promote speaking and listening with empathy, dignity, and resilience about even the most difficult aspects of abortion. For the Fall 2013 grant cycle, we are particularly interested in proposals intended to open communication on an interpersonal level and/or within a community.

 

The ACP Board is committed to ongoing, collaborative engagement with our grantees; we respect your project and want to give it the best possible support. In that spirit, we encourage each prospective grant applicant to discuss her/his project with a member of the ACP Board or ACP Grant Subcommittee before submitting an application. We also intend to remain connected to grantees and their projects on an on-going basis.

 

Grants are available for project costs (printing, facility rental, etc.), technological costs (internet access charges, photocopying, etc.) travel expenses (including transportation, lodging, and meals), and other material expenses. Starting in the Fall 2013 cycle we are willing to provide grant money for salaries/person hours/honoraria, etc. Grants to pay for personnel will be for completed projects and direct costs will be reimbursed with receipts.

 

Grants are available in amounts up to $2000.00 per project; recipients may not apply for two grants in one twelve-month period; grants must be completed within one year of receipt. We do accept applications for collaborative projects. We want to maximize the limited amount of money we have to give, so we will appreciate smaller requests that will allow us to assist more projects. We will give priority to applications for support for new projects or for new portions of existing projects.

 

Grantees agree to allow ACP to publicize their projects on our website and in other publicity materials for the organization and to provide evaluative feedback from their projects, when appropriate. We also offer support in additional fund-raising. All grantees agree to submit a Completion Report to ACP no more than one year after receiving their grants. (The Completion Report Form is available on the ACP website.) Neglecting to submit a Completion Report will result in ineligibility for future grants.

 

Application Process

Applications are accepted for two annual grant cycles; deadlines will be announced on our blog and in relevant media. Deadline for Fall 2013 is October 1, 2013. Applicants are asked to complete the ACP Support Grant Application form, after speaking with a member of our team. Grantees will be notified of the decision of the ACP Grant Subcommittee no later than Nov. 1, for the fall cycle. Submit electronically and make inquiries to Info@abortionconversation.com.
