Good news – we’ve decided to extend our fall grant application deadline to December 15th! We know that schedules get pretty full around the holiday season, so now you can spend a little more time thinking about that good deed that you want to do.
Thank you to everyone who applied to our summer grant round. We were thrilled to be part of the great ideas we received! Fall applications will be due on November 15th, 2014, so keep those good deeds and ideas coming!
The ONE Good Deed Fund will be making seed bombs at this year’s Ramble – an Old North End-wide annual festival that takes place on the last Saturday in July – and all are invited to join! On Saturday, July 26th, we’ll be in front of Old Spoke’s Home at 322 N. Winooski Ave in Burlington making seed bombs and sharing them with anyone who’d like to make their own and take a few to plant on a neglected little patch of soil. More info is available on our facebook event page.
Can’t make it to the event but want to make your own seed bombs? Here’s a great tutorial from Instructables.
Thanks to WPTZ for taking the time to speak to board president Laura Hale and board treasurer Debbie Krug! The segment is up on their website:
The ONE Good Deed Fund, a community fund in Burlington’s Old North End neighborhood, has announced its first grant round open to individuals who would like to do a good deed for someone who resides in the Old North End. The grants fund the costs of materials and services needed to complete a good deed up to $100. Applications are due by August 15th and are available on the fund’s website at http://www.ONEGoodDeedFund.org.
The ONE Good Deed Fund was founded on the belief that acts of kindness toward others are what build community. The fund is here to help cover the cost of those acts. Often someone is inspired to help others and yet doesn’t have the resources to make it happen, and the fund seeks to break down that barrier by offering financial support for goods and services needed to make those good deeds a reality. Giving is focused on projects in Burlington’s Old North End neighborhood, with the goal of eventually expanding to include the rest of the city and other parts of the state.
