SBB Research Group, as part of the Chicago-area investment firm’s monthly grant program to support impactful nonprofit organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic, is excited to congratulate the July 2020 finalists (in alphabetical order):
Blackdog All Breed Dog Rescue (Glenview, Illinois), an animal shelter dedicated to caring for dogs in need and supporting vaccinations and veterinary visits for families who cannot afford them.
Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois (Lincoln, Illinois), a poverty-fighting organization providing meals, personal development, and other services to underserved families.
The Well (Mars Hill, Maine), a safe haven for youth that serves the community by providing meals, educational guidance, and counseling to children and young adults in need.
These finalists will give ten-minute presentations via videoconference to SBB Research Group’s staff, who will have the opportunity to ask questions to learn more about each of these important causes. The employees will then vote to allocate the company’s monthly grant awards, which range from $1,000 to $5,000 per charity. Each finalist will receive at least $1,000 in donations.
SBB Research Group received grant applications from many worthy organizations, and those who were not selected as July 2020 finalists will still be considered in future months. Any 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is encouraged to apply, and the application is just 10 brief questions. For more information, please visit https://www.sbbrg.org/apply-for-grant.
