NKY Nonprofit Offering $50K in Exchange for Big Ideas
In honor of Covington’s Bicentennial, the Devou Good Project Inc. has furthered its mission to help the city thrive by inviting nonprofits and other community-based groups to enter The Covington Project Contest. The contest seeks to help qualifying organizations get a community betterment project completed. The project is open exclusively to groups with ideas that will benefit the community of Covington, Kentucky such as festivals, awareness campaigns, school initiatives, beautification projects, park space and projects that come to the aid of people directly. The DGP does not issue grants, but instead provides expertise, labor, management and materials to make the winning project(s) become reality.
DGP founder, Rebekah Gensler, is intrigued by the ideas submitted to date, “There are so many creative groups out there who have incredible ideas, but lack some of the resources to execute them. That’s where we want to step up and make a difference with The Covington Project Contest.”
Entry forms and official rules are available at the organization's website at www.devougood.com or by emailing [email protected]. The deadline for applications received is December 15, 2014. Winner(s) will be announced on February 27, 2015. Maximum project amounts will total $50,000 and the number of winners will be based on the cost of ideas submitted.
The Devou Good Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which partners with other nonprofits and community organizations to assess the unique needs of communities within Greater Cincinnati and to facilitate projects which target those needs. The group’s most recent endeavor was the first annual DevouGrass Music and Arts Festival which raised awareness and $10,000 in donations for The Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky’s adolescent addiction treatment programs.
