The Pooltogether grants committee was formed through PTIP-14.
The grants program’s pilot program of 6 months will be coming to an end on 18. November.
The current committee members were elected for the duration of the pilot program.
Now there will be an open application process for all of the spots on the committee.
Once the new committee members are selected, there will be a PTIP for the continuation of the grants program for an additional 6 months.
The current committee structure is as follows:
1 Lead: Primary correspondent with grantees, management of internal processes/operations
1 Deputy Lead: Correspondent with grantees, focus on outreach and marketing
4-5 Reviewers: Reviews grants, gives input/feedback
During the pilot program, the average time investment has been approximately:
Deputy Lead: 6h/week
This is an open question and we are very happy to have an open discussion.
If you have any ideas or suggestions for how the grants committee should look going forward, drop them in the PoolGrants open feedback thread.
If you are interested in having a role on the PoolGrants committee, pitch yourself on this post. Explain why you think you would be a good fit and maybe even what you bring to the table that has been missing in the current team.
Deadline for applications: Sunday 7. November 2021
