Projects Funded in Previous Years
Abe Keller Peace Education Award
In addition to providing grants, the Fund will make an annual award, the Abe Keller Peace Education Award, to an individual or group deemed to be making a truly significant contribution to peace education in the Puget Sound region. The award is intended to recognize the work of the recipient, to bring the work to the attention of the broader community, and to include a monetary prize that can assist the recipient further peace education efforts in the region.
Our Grant-Making Policies
Any individual or group may seek financial assistance, and each request will be honored by issuing a copy of "Grant Application Guidelines." No unsolicited proposal will be considered unless preceded by a query letter and subsequent invitation to submit a proposal. Only invited proposals will be evaluated for further consideration. The Board's decision will be final in each instance. At the Board's discretion, the Fund may solicit proposals consistent with its peace education objectives. Grant awards will give consideration to how the funds can help recipients perform more effectively and achieve broad community outreach that encompasses religious organizations, public and private schools, businesses, labor organizations, community service groups, etc.
The Board shall establish criteria and processes for (1) determining which grant proposals will be invited, (2) evaluating grant proposals, and (3) deciding which proposals will be granted during the current grant cycle. The "Grant Applications Guidelines" will attempt to communicate these criteria and processes. The Board shall also establish means for monitoring and tracking granted projects to assure responsible and effective use of funds.
