New Nomination Policies-Please Review

To ensure we are funding children whose families are in need we have removed certain criteria and added others. (See below)

Also, in an effort to answer frequently asked questions we have laid out the following information of how our program works, but please understand each case is different and these procedures are subject to change.

Step One: After we have received your nomination it will be reviewed and we will contact the guardian with further information.

Step Two: Agreements and Waivers must be signed prior to receiving funding, you may review them here: https://grantawishco.org/agreement/

Step Three: Funding is based on funds availability. Because a child qualified once does not mean they will qualify again or that their siblings are qualified. Scholarship amounts will be determined on a family by family basis.

  • We only fund programs that provide positive peers and role models.
  • We no longer fund one on one programs or lessons.
  • If a child is approved we will scholarship them for one program/season per their calendar year. Their calendar year begins the date we receive their nomination.
  • If this program is new to the child we will fund their chosen program for one month, to confirm the child will enjoy and attend the program, prior to funding a season/session. For instance, if the child is enrolled in dance, we will fund for one month and then review for further funding. Another example is if a child enrolls in football in May we would scholarship for the spring season/session and the child would need to reapply for the fall season.

Each program has a different cost associated with it, it is up to the family to find the best program for their child including; location, dates & times. We can offer options and suggestions of organizations we work with when needed.

We are not associated or affiliated with any of the programs we fund. 

Please be aware: As of 8/13/2018 some camps are no longer be fundable.

2019 NOTICE! Applications will only be accepted on a Winter & Summer schedule: November through January & June through August. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY!!
