Foundation for Rich Content Announces New Grant Opportunities for Spring
The Foundation for Rich Content is announcing a change in funding
with the development of a granting cycle for large grants. We will be
accepting proposals for three grants between February 15 and March 25
(deadline for proposal submissions is March 25, Noon, to be submitted
to Persephone Phoenix). Announcements will be made to successful
grantees on April 8th with fund dispersals following shortly after.
Available will be one $50,000 Linden grant and two $10,000 Linden
grants. The grants should be used to create content that enriches the
experiences of residents in SL. Examples would be educational events,
arts and cultural events, etc.
We are united in a common goal, which is to foster diversity and
richness in content and events in Second Life. It will be our duty to
provide the tools and funding necessary to support anyone wishing to
host such events or create such content. It will further be our duty to
aid in marketing, promotion, public relations and other activities to
garner general awareness of such content and events. For more
information on the FFRC, see http://groups.google.com/group/sl-ffrc .
