Applications for AMHA's Breed Promotion Grant are now being accepted. The grant, which replaces the former Trade Show Funding that was offered only to AMHA clubs and is new in 2016, is now offered to any Morgan enthusiast, AMHA club, organized Morgan group, Morgan barn, or AMHA-affiliated organization for funding for any Morgan breed promotion purpose. AMHA will award up to $10,000 each year and will consider requests of all sizes.
The applicant needs to make a compelling grant request and include information regarding the size of the audience or reach of the program. Applications must include a full proposal of the idea, budget details, proof of any advertising collateral or materials that will be used to promote the event and/or program. If you are requesting a grant to run an ad in a magazine, a proof of the ad must accompany the grant request. Or if you plan to hold an open barn, any fliers or other materials to be used must be submitted with the grant request.
AMHA reserves the right to award as many or as few grants as deemed appropriate based upon the grant requests received.
The grant application is open now until Friday, January 15, 2016, 5 p.m. Eastern Time. Grant recipients are required to file a written summary of the activities the grant funded within 45 days of expending the funds.
