Case Tries Online Competition For Grants

The Case Foundation, the philanthropic enterprise created by former AOL chief Steve Case and his wife Jean, is going online for help in choosing who deserves grants of up to $35,000 for community outreach projects.

Here's how the competition will work:

"Through the Make It Your Own Awards, the Case Foundation will search out great ideas from people who connect with others, choose what matters, and take action -- and let online voters determine the top grant recipients.

Applications will be accepted online at from June 26 through August 8, 2007. A group of external reviewers from diverse backgrounds and communities will review all applications and select 100 semifinalists. In early September, the semifinalists will submit more detailed proposals demonstrating how they will connect people to form solutions to bring about the change they desire.

All grant applicants will receive Web-based tools they can use to promote their efforts, fundraise, and gather support for their ideas. In November, the top 20 finalists will be awarded $10,000 grants, and the final four, selected by the online community, will get additional $25,000 grants."
