Amherst club offers funding for nonprofits

AMHERST - The Amherst Junior Women's Club invites nonprofit organizations in need of charitable contributions to apply for a donation. Throughout the year, the club raises money and then disburses those funds within the community.

To qualify, the nonprofit does not need to have an Amherst address, but it must service the local community.

Requests must be submitted by Sunday, March 31, in writing or by e-mail. Once approved, the money will be distributed no later than June 15. The club only will notify the chosen recipients about the disbursements.

The request must contain: the name of organization, mailing address, email address, website if available, phone number, contact name and a copy of a 501 (c)(3) letter or nonprofit letter, as well as the dollar amount requested.

The request also should include when the organization was established and a short history, how it funds itself, such as federal or local grants, and its annual budget, including any expected shortfalls.

The organization also must address: how the money would be used; how the organization benefits Amherst and the greater community; and how the organization's objective corresponds to the club's mission.

The club says it's a group of women who volunteer their time, energy and talent to enhance the community. Its mission is to focus efforts on civic needs, educational advancement and the less fortunate.
