Plutus Foundation Grant – Spring 2022 for Financial Education Projects (up to $2,000)


Deadline: March 14, 2022

Applications are open for the Plutus Foundation Grant 2022. The Plutus Foundation provides grants and resources to foster opportunities for financial media to create, grow and administer community programs that improve financial literacy, education and empowerment .

Twice a year, the Foundation offers two or more grants to members of the personal finance media offering community-based financial education and/or financial literacy programs. The grant will fund program-related activities such as materials (e.g., workbooks, pamphlets, slides), overhead (e.g., vendor table fees, image licenses, l purchase of the domain name) and other expenses directly related to the creation of the program and the provision of services.

To agree

  • The maximum they will award to each recipient in this round is $2,000.

Eligibility

  • The Plutus Foundation provides grants to members of the independent financial media who work to create financial education programs in their own community. Members of the financial media, including but not limited to bloggers, podcasters, vloggers, journalists, speakers and authors are welcome to apply. Educators are also eligible.
  • They support programs globally, but they focus most of their resources on US-based programs.

Selection criteria

All submitted proposals will be evaluated by the Grants Management Team and will be reviewed for mandatory criteria as well as consistency with the mission of the Plutus Foundation. Proposals that are incomplete or do not correspond to the mission will be eliminated.

Based on the results of the evaluation, the programs most aligned with the mission of the Plutus Foundation will be selected as recipients. However, if the committee decides that no proposal sufficiently meets the criteria, no grant will be awarded and the call for proposals will be relaunched. If a proposal is selected and is unable to fulfill the contract with the Plutus Foundation, the grant may be terminated and awarded to the next qualified applicant.

  • Statement of relevance to the mission of the Plutus Foundation.
