General Funding Guidelines

An internal committee of the MCCA will review grant applications and determine which programs will receive funding. Only requests from Boston-based, non-profit organizations working with at-risk youth, women or seniors, as well as programs revitalizing or improving a neighborhood and therefore improving the convention, tourist or visitor experience, will be reviewed. Requests for funding will be reviewed once a year. Applications for the current grant cycle must be received by March 21, 2012.

GRANT PROPOSAL EVALUATION CRITERIA
Proposals for grants will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Organizations must be based in Boston.
  • Organizations receiving funding must be a recognized 501c3.
  • Only grants that meet the two following criteria would be considered:
    • At-risk youth, women and seniors
    • Any program that revitalizes or improves a neighborhood and therefore improves the convention, tourist or visitor experience.
  • No capital campaign funding.
  • No grant shall exceed $5,000.
  • No donations to political causes or political action committees.
  • Organizations will be required to furnish a purpose for their request (e.g., new education program, 2012 annual event, etc.)
  • Incomplete applications may not be accepted. All forms must be filled out in their entirety.
  • Provide 10 copies with (one unbound reproducible copy) upon submission.
  • Failure to include a current IRS determination letter indicating tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status will result in disqualification of the application.
