Augustana Foundation 3-Minute Video Grant Competition

The 50th Anniversary celebration of the Augustana Foundation continues with the 3-Minute Grant Competition. The Foundation is pleased to announce it will be funding several special 50th Anniversary Grant Awards in amounts ranging from $1,500 to $3,000.

Grant submissions will be made via a 3-minute video which can be uploaded through the link below, July 1–September 15, 2021. Videos can be shot using a cellular phone or video camera and should showcase the organization or group, the specific need for the grant, and how the project or organization currently or potentially will be related to Augustana and its mission. The videos are in addition to the normal written grant requests.

Please use your organization or ministry’s name as the name of your video file. Upload your video through this link, then complete the submission form below.

Grant applications will be reviewed and selected for funding using the same process as used for written grant applications. These 50th Anniversary Grant Awards will be presented at the Foundation Gala on November 5, 2021.

Any questions should be addressed to Russ Epperson (raepperson@yahoo.com).
