The Accelerator Grant strategically advances organizations from growth to maturity. It invests between $10,000 and $20,000 in growth organizations with budgets of $100,000 to $750,000 to fund the creation of a multiyear strategic plan (Phase 1 funding). Organizations may also apply for up to $20,000 in funding to implement elements of an existing board-approved strategic plan (Phase 2 funding).
