Case Foundation Seeking "Citizen Reviewers" for New Grants Program

Cynthia Gibson asked us to share an announcement from the Case Foundation with the NCDD network. The Case Foundation is looking for some folks to serve as external reviewers for the first part of its new grantmaking effort focused on igniting citizen-centered community work across the country (a very exciting development!). And it’s doing it in a way that reflects a citizen-centered approach by involving people outside the foundation in every part of the process, starting with reviewing Letters of Intent (LOIs).

The Foundation has received some great applications from a number of people across the country who are interested in serving as reviewers. They’re particularly interested, however, in getting applications from people who’ve been directly and personally involved in community-based public work, deliberation, or collaborative problem-solving. Applications are due by Wednesday, May 23rd.

Interested applicants should first read the job description and are strongly encouraged to review the Foundation’s paper (by Cindy Gibson), Citizens at the Center: A New Approach to Civic Engagement (www.casefoundation.org/citizens). An executive summary of the paper is also included in the job description.

And since there might be a small chance you want to know (smile), the Case Foundation plans to award 20 grants (both community-based organizations and individual are eligible to apply) for $10,000 each. Four of the finalists will be selected by an online community to receive additional $25,000 awards.
