GMF is pleased to announce a new grant opportunity available to past Legacy Grant recipients!

The Gutierrez Memorial Fund is committed to sustaining all of our wonderful past projects and supporting their continued prominence in the community. The GMF ‘Sustainer Grant’ offers a way for previous Legacy Grant recipients to maintain and/or enhance their GMF Legacy Projects. We anticipate the Sustainer Grant to be a short term grant, able to be accomplished within a 3-month period. Legacy Grant recipients can request additional funds up to $2,500.

The grant will open on May 15th this year in conjunction with our 2019 Legacy Grant. The deadline for applications is July 1st. Starting in 2020 it will be available annually each March.
