the opportunity for you to introduce your organization, tell us what problems
you face, and how we can help. It also allows us to determine whether the
purpose or project for which you are seeking funding has aims consistent with
our mission and areas of interest. The grant application is subject to change.

the review is complete, the trustees will select the projects that will be
