Lightman family calls for grants

The Steven A. Lightman Family Foundation has opened its 2013 call for grants.

The Lightman Family Foundation distributes funds to further the Jewish Community Foundation’s charitable activities that promote health and wellness, on a local and national level, and foster creative and artistic endeavors. The areas of interest include, but are not limited to the arts, children, education, elderly, environment and the needy. The types of grants that will be considered are matching, projects, training, research, scholarships and multi-year, with special interest in proposals that have matching funds available.

The deadline to submit a proposal is Friday, June 21, at 5 p.m. All grants must be submitted online at www.jcftucson.org/mp3/lightman. Funding requests must be between $500 and $5,000. Larger requests will not be considered.
