Small grants now available from Digicel Foundation

The Digicel Foundation will host an open day for its ‘Extraordinary Projects Impacting Communities’ (EPIC)--a small grant initiative--on April 30 from 10AM to 3PM at the Digicel Hospitality Suite, Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain.

According to a release issued by the Foundation, all registered community-based, faith-based and non-government organisations are invited to apply for an EPIC grant to implement impactful community projects in their communities.

EPIC is an initiative that encourages registered organisations to propose small scale projects that enhance indoor or outdoor spaces that develop communities.

Organisations that attend the open day will receive additional information and assistance with the application process for the grant which awards US$5,000 per projects to be completed within eight-week period.

EPIC funding applications are also available online and can be found on their website. Completed forms can be submitted through email to digicelfoundationtt@digicelgroup.com or through postal mail to Digicel Foundation at the ANSA Centre, 11 C Maraval Road, St. Clair. The call for applications ends on April 30.

Since the launch of EPIC in March 2016, the Digicel Foundation has invested TT$3 million in 39 community-based projects that have impacted over 20,000 persons in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Foundation encourages EPIC applicants to collaborate with other public and private sector entities.
