September Take Action Grant – View and Vote

Presenting the September Take Action Grant (TAG) application for Documentary Film Community Engagement Project. The request for a TAG is to support the dissemination of a documentary film called Alberta: The Next Chapter. The funds would go toward organizing screenings and discussion groups to engage citizens in the issues raised by the film.

Requesting C$895 & CDN$1,000.

Please watch this 3 minute video from the applicant, Brent Spiess who has a project that requires funding in Calgary Dollars and federal dollars.

You can participate in TAG review and vote process by considering these guidelines; How would this grant make a difference? Is this a concrete, clear project? Has the applicant worked for a long time on this issue? How would other community work be promoted by this project?

You can then vote yes or not in favour, and/or add comments in the blog along with your name.

Brent will also be at the Calgary Dollars Market on Monday September 12 and will be hosting a table and answering any questions in person. Please join us 6 – 8 pm at the Bow Cliff Seniors Centre 608 Poplar Rd. SW

Take Action Grants are reviewed on a monthly basis and are funded by The Calgary Foundation and Calgary Dollars.
