The AIDS Foundation of Chicago invites non-profit organizations in the Chicago metropolitan area to submit funding proposals for HIV-related programs and services.
Agencies interested in applying should download the Request for Proposals available on AFC's website, www.aidschicago.org, or contact Cheryl Beck at e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy. Proposals are due no later than March 5, 2004.
The mission of AFC's grantmaking program is to support programs designed to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and/or to care for those living with and affected by the epidemic. Within this broad mission, AFC funds organizations that conduct HIV education, prevention, and/or risk-reduction programs; provide direct care services for people affected by HIV; and advocate on behalf of people affected by HIV. Funding priority is given to community-based organizations and those organizations serving populations disproportionately affected by HIV, especially communities of color.
Since 1988, AFC has provided nearly $13 million to agencies. Nearly half has supported organizations serving and governed by people of color.
