Each year the Parker Town Council considers funding requests from non-profit organizations that serve Parker residents. Contributions are awarded during the budget process and must address an existing need in the community, a demonstrated gap in service, or support a Town of Parker Strategic Goal.
Please note that the funding in recent years has been limited and requests may exceed the funds available. Applications are due on August 27, 2021 with Council approval in November or December 2021. Funds will be available January 2022.
Please note, previous year funding levels may not be available in 2021 due to the budget impacts of Covid19.
The Community Contributions Award Committee will review applications based on the following objectives and criteria:
Nonprofits will be required to submit a Community Contributions Application for Annual Funding to be considered for funding. Nonprofits shall meet application guidelines and submit all documents outlined in the application. The application shall be submitted by the due date. Applications that are not completed in full will not be considered. Failure to submit application by the deadline will be considered forfeiture to submit. Nonprofits receiving funds will be required to make annual presentations to Town Council during the year funds are received. These presentations will be scheduled through the Town Administrator’s office.
Applications will be initially reviewed by staff comprising departments most closely associated with the non-profit’s program or service area. Following this initial review, executive staff will meet with the Town Administrator and Finance Director to consider the preliminary recommendations of the department staff. Successful applications are then presented to Town Council for final approval during the annual budget process. All applicants will be notified of their status following Town Council’s approval process.
