We are pleased to announce that the following organizations have been selected as the 2020 Many Hands finalists. Based on our members’ votes, one organization will receive the 2020 Many Hands $100,000 Impact Grant. The three other finalists will receive Many Hands Partner Grants of at least $50,000.
We are deeply grateful to all the Many Hands members whose generosity makes these grants possible. We extend special thanks to the members who served on our four Focus Area Committees–Education, Health, Housing, and Job Readiness–for the many hours they devoted to reviewing applications and selecting the finalists. And we thank the staff of applicant organizations who took the time to respond to questions and host site visits, whether in person or online.
All members should have received an email with the four finalists’ presentations and a link to a form where you can submit questions for each organization’s executive director. Later this week, we will record presentations and brief Q&A sessions with all four executive directors.
Links to the recorded presentations will be emailed to members on Monday, May 11, along with a link to vote. Voting will close at 9:00 pm on Thursday, May 14. If you have any questions about this process, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
