The Paso del Norte Health Foundation seeks Letters of Intent (LOIs) from eligible organizations to promote the Foundation’s Strategic Plan for the IGNITE Initiative.
Specifically, the Health Foundation seeks LOIs to increase the number of out-of-school-time programs for disconnected youth. Preference will be given to approaches that:
- Are focused on disconnected youth as defined in the strategic plan
- Serve youth between the ages of 5-17 years old
- Reach at least 100 new youth
- Offer summer programming
The Foundation expects that out of school programs will incorporate and strengthen the seven program quality characteristics and maintain focus on increasing connection in the region.
Applicants are encouraged to download and read the IGNITE Strategic Plan.
LOIs will be reviewed and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal. Applicants are encouraged to meet with Bianca De León, Program Officer, before proposal submission.
