We had over 100 applications this time around. A huge thanks to our donors along with the GPF Scholarship Committee and other volunteers who helped score the applications. Congratulations to our 2018 GPA National Conference Scholars! They have each won a $525 early bird conference registration, and four won reimbursable travel/lodging expenses as well. Please help us congratulate them now and at #GPAConf18 in Chicago November 7-10, 2018.

So What?

Every Chapter Challenge 2018: Talking Points

The 2018 Every Chapter Challenge is a nationwide campaign asking all GPA chapters to support the Grant Professionals Foundation Scholarship Program.
ECC campaign funds are used to award scholarships for:

• GPA National Conference
• GPCTM Credentialing Program
• GPA Membership
• Regional Conference Sponsorships

The ECC Challenge Goal is $250 or more for every GPA Chapter in 2018.

Shooting Star Club and Star Chapter

Chapters that give to the Every Chapter Challenge are honored as members of the Shooting Star Club.
Chapters compete for the distinction of becoming the 2018 Star Chapter by giving the most to the Every Chapter Challenge. The 2018 Star Chapter will be announced at the National Conference in Chicago.
The Star Chapter Challenge Gift Form is available online on the GPF website.

Individual member gifts, including Monthly Giving Well donations, can be applied to a local GPA Chapter for the Every Chapter Challenge.
Gifts can be credited to a named scholarship or given in honor/memory of someone.
Give safely and securely online on the GPF website

Why Give to ECC

• Help grow the grant profession by encouraging GPA membership
• Provide the means for new grant professionals to improve their skills and knowledge
• Enhance the credibility of the grant profession by supporting GPC credentialing
• Support grant professionals who have limited resources to pursue professional development
• Make an impact on nonprofit organizations across the country that are able to do more and do it better because of the expertise of their grant professionals.
