Request For Resource Proposal 

Resource Proposal Overview

D.R.E.W. Projects dedicate resources to public 501(c)(3) U.S. non-profit organizations with annual revenue of $25k or less. Through our experience, we've encountered numerous startup non-profits addressing the challenge of "not enough" when implementing community projects. To help solve this issue, D.R.E.W. Projects has made it part of our mission to help close the gap in technology, project, and outreach needs.

 

We provide material resources (not funding) to help non-profit organizations implement community projects in their neighborhood. The projects must align with one or more D.R.E.W. Projects Initiatives for consideration.

 

Funding for these resources is made possible through fundraising, donations, and not grants. We will announce open dates to apply for the biannual Resource Request Proposals on this page.
