2024 Grant Application
The availability of funding for grant awards varies depending upon the success of the annual Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, typically held in October. Organizations may request up to $25,000 in funding per eligible project. Applications for multiple projects may be submitted by an organization, so long as each project is unique and independent of the other. Each application will be graded on its own merit. Due to the competitive nature of the grant process, past funding does not guarantee future awards.
Organizations that receive grant awards are expected to participate in ITJ activities, especially the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, the ITJ Giving Gala, and the annual Lunch & Learn.
