Hestia's Mission

To promote economic self-sufficiency and well being for women and girls

Instructions

  • The application must be received by May 1.

  • BROWSER REQUIREMENTS: The online function works best with Google Chrome.  You must allow pop-ups from Hestia.  To do this go to Settings > Site Settings (under Privacy) > Pop-ups and redirects >  Allow https://hestiacircle.org    REFRESH YOUR BROWSER AFTER MAKING THIS CHANGE.

  • The form can be saved online prior to submitting by clicking the SAVE DRAFT button at the end of the application.  CHECK THIS FUNCTION EARLY, after entering your organization, name, and email, to ensure your browser / virus protection allows it.  If you don’t get a notification that your draft has been saved close the site, check the browser requirements as detailed above, refresh, and retry.  If you don’t get a pop-up saying your draft has been saved IT HAS NOT BEEN SAVED.  If you continue to have problems contact the Grant Chair INFO@hestiacircle.org  

  • PRINT (right click and print to PDF or paper) your online report prior to clicking on the Save Draft or Submit button.  In the event there is a failure to save the online filing properly, this will give you a record to use to re-enter your data.

  • Budget portion: Revenues must equal Expenses.  You enter the individual line items that apply to your application.  The program will total them for you.  YOU CANNOT EDIT THE SUM, ONLY THE LINE ITEMS.

  • Please enter budget items in whole dollars only - no cents

  • The Application ID number that pops up must be remembered to retrieve your saved draft.  Your application ID will pop up and be emailed to you.  Once your application is submitted it cannot be changed.

  • If you are awarded a grant, the Final Report Form, available on this website, is required by April 15 of the following year.

 

To meet our mission, we support programs that serve women and girls in Emmet and Charlevoix counties.  Successful grantees receive their checks at a reception.  Attendees may have their photographs used in our newsletter or on our website.
