How to Apply
It is important to us that all of our Neighbors Program partnerships are serving a community need. We will ask that you fill out a short application that explains the goals of your project, describes a bit about your community, and demonstrates that there is a community support or buy-in for the work being proposed. Depending upon the scale of the project you are proposing, we will also ask that you commit to a matching donation or attach a letter from a fiscal partner who is willing to offer some financial support for the work. We ask for a matching contribution for larger or more complicated projects to ensure that there is a shared sense of accountability and responsibility between the community team and the Asakura Robinson team.
The funding also allows us to provide more services to communities than would otherwise be possible. In addition to enhancing the amount of time we can devote, it helps cover overhead costs such as printing, food and drinks for workshops, and any other costs involved in preparing the implementation strategy.
We’re currently accepting applications and will follow up within two weeks of submission for an initial discussion.
Applications may be submitted electronically through the form on our website, or by email to Libby Bland at firstname.lastname@example.org You will be contacted for follow up within two weeks of your submission.
We are happy to discuss details of the Neighbors Program further with interested applicants to help determine the feasibility of the projects prior to applying. For any questions, please reach out to Libby Bland at email@example.com. For inquiries in Spanish, please contact Hugo Colon at firstname.lastname@example.org
