Important memo regarding the Foundation Grant Program.

The AVC Foundation Grants program assists AVC campus entities with awards for activities or purchases that are not funded from the college/district budget. Grants are provided by the AVC Foundation general fund (“AVC Fund”), through unrestricted employee giving and donor contributions.

Grants are awarded for activities and purchases that directly support faculty, staff, and students for the betterment of Antelope Valley College and its educational mission.  The AVC Foundation needs information on how your proposal provides that support, how you will spend the funds, past and future funding of this or similar activities, and cooperation between your area and the Foundation. A Foundation grants review committee will review applications.  Please direct any questions to Lisa O’Leary at the Foundation Office, at ext. 6055.

The application for the Spring 2018 semester is now open.  The application is due no later than Thursday, March 29 by 5 p.m.
