The UAF Program team would like to inform you of some small changes to our grantmaking for the remainder of 2019. We have implemented a new database to process our grants and as with all new systems, learning takes time. In addition, we are committed to wellbeing and care as central to UAF’s approach to funding and how we work. As the year comes to a close, our grantmaking team will take a pause from their daily processing of rapid response grants in order to focus on our new grantmaking system and taking care of ourselves to prepare for 2020.
Please note between December 16, 2019 -January 3, 2020, UAF will not accept new grant applications. Any grant applications that have been received on or before December 13, are being reviewed. We will resume our grantmaking on January 6, 2020.
We appreciate your trust and understanding. We look forward to being in touch and resuming grantmaking with renewed energy and a more efficient system in 2020.
In love and solidarity,
Raisa, Bella, Nathalie, Huong, and Shalini
