The Skillman Foundation Opens Afterschool and Summer Program Request for Proposals this Month
DETROIT – The Skillman Foundation has opened a Request for Proposals (RFP) in December 2019 through January 29, 2020 for its 2020 Call For Collaboration grants for Detroit youth-serving organizations.
Those working in or with afterschool program providers, schools, community centers, parks and recreation, libraries, churches, colleges/universities, or other youth-serving organizations in the city are invited to submit their grant proposals to the Foundation for support of afterschool and/or summer experiences for Detroit kids.
