Become A Community Grant Review Panellist

For over 65 years the Give Where You Live Foundation has been making grants to create positive social change across our region, creating a better community. As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency, accountability, and community involvement, the Give Where You Live Foundation invites community members from all walks of life to participate in our Grant Review process.

Reviewers are asked to read 3-5 Grant Applications and to provide feedback on those applications via a grant review form. In addition to reading and reviewing applications, reviewers participate in an Orientation Session (before they read and review the applications) and a Panel Discussion Session (after they have read and reviewed the applications).

To participate in any forthcoming Grant Review Panels please download and review the Grant Review Panel Information Sheet here and Grant Review Panelist Position Description here
