The mission of the Perlman Foundation is to bridge support gaps by assisting lower income children and families and charitable organizations that are working to improve communities throughout the United States. We seek to empower individuals and organizations by providing direct grants as well intangible services that positively impact beliefs, attitudes, emotions and confidence. The organization has announced the Bridging the Gap Award grant application, that will open tomorrow. This grant targets smaller charitable organizations (budgets under $250 thousand a year) that work with low-income communities in states where the Perlman Foundation has a presence. Organizations will have a chance to receive a $1,000-$10,000 unrestricted grant to help further their mission.
Applications will be accepted between September 15, 2012 through October 15, 2012. Voting starts November 1,2012! Organizations must like and apply on the Perlman Foundation Facebook page.
