A special message to www.peninsuladailynews.com readers

The PDN grant program is accepting applications from charitable, 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations in Clallam and Jefferson counties for $25,000 in 2002 grants from the newspaper.

The intent of the PDN’s grant program is to fund charitable and civic projects that otherwise might not happen.

The newspaper breaks the $25,000 into individual grants of $500 to $5,000, and a committee of Peninsula Daily News employees and members of the public awards the grants.

Normally the money is awarded in two periods during the year, but this year all of the funds will be allocated next month.

Deadline for grant applications is 5 p.m. Friday, March 22.

Application forms may be requested in person, or by writing Peninsula Daily News, ATTN: PDN Fund Applications, 305 W. First St., Port Angeles 98368, or by phoning 360-417-3527.

Or e-mail your request for an application to news@peninsuladailynews.com. (The application itself is not online and cannot be e-mailed.)

Last year, 17 grants were awarded.

Those receiving grants included the Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Program of Jefferson County to establish a scholarship fund for women overcoming major life challenges; Sequim Senior Center for a 9-1-1 project; The Caring Place of West Clallam County in Forks for cribs and toddler beds; Dungeness Valley Habitat for Humanity for the purchase of carpentry tools; Clallam County Family YMCA for a music studio at the Teen Scene; Clallam Bay/Sekiu Lions Club to make restrooms wheelchair accessible; Northwest Raptor Center for educational programs.

If you have any questions about our grant program — or if you have comments, suggestions or ideas about the Peninsula Daily News — please e-mail John Brewer, the PDN’s editor and publisher, at john.brewer@peninsuladailynews.com.

Or phone him at his direct number, 360-417-3500.
