If you cannot include one or more of the requested items, please give us a brief explanation. We will try to work with you to develop enough information to satisfy our needs.
It would be useful to the Board of Willary if you included a summary of any analysis or evaluation of the field of work directly related to your project or evaluations of similar projects from the past.
Particular Emphasis for Grant Evaluation
The Board of the Willary Foundation is particularly
interested in any unique and innovative facets
of your idea. The Board will also pay particular
attention to how the program will help the Lackawanna
and/or LuzerneCounties' Community. The Board is
particularly looking for projects that will have
a ripple effect or that act as a pilot program
that could be expanded by the community once it
is completed and found successful. The grant evaluation
process may include site visits and interviews
with clients of grantees. Willary reserves the
right to request interim reports.
The Willary Foundation Board of Directors
meets twice a year to consider, evaluate and approve
grants, but requests can be made at any time. We
cannot guarantee the consideration of grant applications
postmarked later than March
10th for the spring
meeting of the Willary Board and no later than
August 27th for the winter meeting of the Board. Please Submit four (4) copies of your application and materials and mail to us at Post Office Box 283, Scranton, PA 18501.
Grants approved but not expended within
one year of approval will be terminated unless
a grant extension is approved by the Willary
Final Evaluation Questions

expended but not later than 90 days after the

following questions at that time:

what you did with your Willary grant money.
In cases of grant money issued for a specific
program, focus exclusively on that program.

operating purposes, tell us exactly what

short term, measurable objectives as listed

or character, please do it here.
8. What challenges / barriers to success
did you encounter? How did you respond to
Normally, grants below $1,000.00 will
not be considered. If you are considering asking
