To mark the season of giving, QVNA will announce the recipients of our 2019 Fall Community Grants and raise glasses of cheers to 50 YEARS OF GREAT VOLUNTEERS!

We encourage everyone to bring a donation of warm clothing for the homeless. And as always, QV Fashionistas are asked to wear favorite ugly holiday sweaters.

Grant Recipients to be announced Dec 18

Please join us on Wednesday, December 18th at 7pm as we announce the recipients of QVNA’s 2019 Fall Community Grants!

This important announcement takes place during QVNA’s Holiday Party at Felly Bistro (769 E. Passyunk).

QVNA’s Community Grant Program provides funding to help improve the quality of life of Queen Village residents.  We accept grant requests for a wide range of projects and programs, such as enhancing parks, gardens, playgrounds, clean & green projects, and historic preservation. We also accept grant applications for in-school, after-school, and summer academic and/or learning enrichment programs.

Grant applications are evaluated by the QVNA Grants Committee based on the:

  1. Degree to which the proposed project meets a community need
  2. Clarity of the project description
  3. Budget detail that reflects well-defined needs and reasonable costs 
  4. Capacity of applicant organization to complete the project

In past years, QVNA grants have helped to fund projects like the Fulton Street Mural, a joint quality of life signage project with Paradigm Gallery and local street artist Kid Hazo, scholastic endeavors at Meredith and Nebinger Elementary, as well as improvements Southwark Queen Village Community Garden, Mario Lanza Park, Beck Park, Friends of Shot Tower and others.
