BRIDGING the GAP AWARDS

WHAT is IT?

In 2012, ALL WAYS UP launched the Bridging the Gap Awards (BGAs), a grant program that assists smaller-sized non-profit organizations that exemplify our mission to bridge the gap between ambition and the opportunity to achieve. Through our partnership with these grass-roots charities, ALL WAYS UP has expanded its giving programs through referrals of students for scholarships and other initiatives.

 

ALL WAYS UP thoroughly researches each organization to ensure that their methods are not only innovative, but offer sound and effective ways to solve low-income community problems. We help these organizations grow and thrive by bridging the funding gaps that exist while trying to build their organizational capacity.

 

The application period for this year is now closed. Check back in the fall of 2019 for next year's grant program.

BRIDGING THE GAP AWARDS

 

The ALL WAYS UP Foundation's Bridging the Gap Awards (BGA) provides one-time grants to small, but effective community nonprofits dedicated to empowering the lives of promising youth and families. Grantees will receive a one-time donation grant to further their mission. In addition, ALL WAYS UP will select a small number of grantees to participate in a crowd funding campaign and ALL WAYS UP will match funds raised by the grantees. Award winners also become eligible for other ALL WAYS UP initiatives, including nominating students for the ALL WAYS UP Scholarship Program.
