We are gearing up for the annual Plutus Awards where we will not only celebrate the best in financial media but we will also announce the recipients of our Fall 2021 grants. If you have a financial literacy project or program, please read on to learn more about our application process and how you could be in the Fall 2021 cohort.
What is it?
Twice per year, the Foundation makes available two $2,000 grants to members of the personal finance media providing community-based financial education and/or financial literacy programs. Past winners include The Legacy Project, Girl Scouts Get Fin LIT, and Homes on the Hill.
Anyone who writes, podcasts, or produces videos about personal finance or money management is eligible to apply for a grant. Teachers and educators of personal finance or money management are also eligible.
What Do I Need to Do?
Applying for a grant is simple. Just visit our submission page for detailed information and instructions.
Why Should I Apply?
A grant from the Plutus Foundation helps jump-start or expand your offline project, providing opportunities for growth in exposure and effect. You’ll not only receive funds, but social media and programming support to bring attention to your project. And we get to partner with new, innovative, and creative projects like yours.
The deadline for our Fall 2021 grant application is September 3, with winners being announced on September 23, 2021, at the Plutus Awards ceremony. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Grant Manager, Sherrian Crumbley, at [email protected]
We’re looking forward to reading your submissions!
