Partners for Campus Community Engagement: PCCE’s Civic Imagination Grant program is designed to support community-based organizations and higher ed institutions working together in New York & Pennsylvania whether by proximity or interest in similar topics to address common issues. These grants of up to $3,000 each may focus on one of these types: Partnership and Co-Sponsorship. The Civic Imagination Grants build on partners’ capacity to cultivate civic imagination, deepen civic and community engagement, and strengthen PCCE’s regional communities. This year, we are especially interested in supporting efforts that focus on racial healing, democratic engagement, and climate justice/change.
  • Partnership Grants: Partnership applications (up to $3000) will be co-designed by at least three organizations (campuses and community partners) with at least one PCCE partner serving as the lead applicant.
  • Co-Sponsorship Grants: Co-sponsorship Grants applications (up to $500) will focus on convening around PCCE priorities and partnership development. Registration and promotion support offered by PCCE.

Aligned with PCCE’s mission, Civic Imagination Grants will accomplish this through one of the following focus areas:

  • Issue-focused convening which highlights a community-identified need, gathers    multiple stakeholders synchronizing efforts, and enhances community & economic development such as: diversity, equity, and inclusion, the opioid epidemic, food access & security, community gardens, refugee/immigrant integration, etc.
  • Professional development for campus leaders such as center directors, staff, faculty, or students. Topics may include: faculty development for service/community-based learning, community engaged research, voter engagement, community partnership development and deliberative dialogue.
