Chapter Grant Program

Now in its second year, the Chapter Grant Program was developed by the Membership Committee and introduced and approved with the 2014-2015 Work Plan and budget. The program was designed to encourage, stimulate and foster membership recruitment and retention within an individual chapter through grant funding provided by NARI National. 

All proposed grant projects should be created and constructed so that the project can be duplicated and utilized in other chapters throughout the NARI system. Multiple entries will be accepted for consideration and new and innovative ideas are encouraged.

Grant project results should be quantifiable and support the request for funding. All projects should be intended to benefit the members of NARI and be consistent with NARI’s 2020 goal of increasing membership by 50%. 

A maximum of $20,000 has been designated for the 2016 calendar year; however, no chapter may request more than $10,000.

All requests will be reviewed and considered by an independent Chapter Grant Program Panel of Judges. These judges are not NARI members or participants in any NARI chapter or at NARI National.

Please complete the attached form and return no later than December 1, 2015 to Patricia Amari by e-mail at pamari@nari.org or by fax at 847 298 9225. Grants will be awarded the first week in January for the 2016 calendar year.
