Darwin Curtis Fund Grant Program (2013-14)

The United States Curling Association (USCA) is proud to announce that the organization was selected to administer the Darwin Curtis Fund grant program on behalf of The Chicago Community Trust again for the 2013-14 season. The Darwin Curtis Fund was established to “support and encourage participation by the general public in the sport of curling …” Curling clubs with 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status, as well as other 501(c)(3) organizations looking to grow the sport, are encouraged to apply for funding. Grant applications will be accepted in two categories: Growth & Development and Bricks & Mortar. Funding requests can range from $1,000 to $20,000, with a total of $20,000 to be distributed during the 2013-14 grant cycle. Clubs that received grant support during the 2012-13 funding cycle will not be eligible during 2013-14.
