Please keep in mind the following as you apply for an LPS grant:
Grants will be awarded at the discretion of the Board of Directors of LPS.
Of paramount concern to LPS is the historical value to Loudoun of the project.
The decision will also be based on the nature, purpose, methods, and merits of the proposal as you have presented it. LPS may have further questions for you.
LPS may partially fund a grant request.
The funds available from the Loudoun Preservation Society for grants vary from year to year based on the success of the board and membership in fundraising.
Because LPS board members and membership have to RAISE these grant funds in a market competitive for local non-profits, they expect that your non-profit will show a vested interest in your project by partially funding it as well. If it is not worth your organization at least partially funding it, this indicates to LPS that it is neither a priority for you nor should it be for them in competition with other projects.
Your project should not already have been completed prior to the grant.
Within 12 months of the grant being given, a report showing significant progress, implementation, or completion of the project should be filed with the Board of Directors of the Loudoun Preservation Society. Digital photos or a copy of the completed work are helpful here. A report at the LPS Annual Preservation Grants program may be requested. Your project may be used to promote others.
