2021 Annual Meeting - LRPC Funds Available

Wednesday, December 2, 2020

To support the first goal of the 2020-2025 strategic plan during the challenges of COVID-19, the Board of Directors has approved allocating a portion of strategic funds to group activities around the 2021 Virtual Meeting. This year, funds will be available for any chapter or group who aims to reach members within a geographic area through an in-person gathering or other innovative activity so long as it is inclusive to any SFS member and follows the local guidance for gathering during the pandemic.

Applications are due by 5:00pm Hawaii/Aleutian Time on Thursday, December 17th.

The process for applying for funds is simple!  Just provide a brief description of your event, contact info and anticipated location, and some details about what funds will be used for.  We understand that firm answers might not be possible at this time—provide your best estimate. The Long-Range Planning Committee will review the applications and decide on award amounts of $500 to $1500 based on the impact of the event for SFS members and the number of requests received.  All applications should be submitted through this form.

If you are selected for funding, you will need to provide detailed budget information and a plan for how you will adhere to all COVID-19 guidelines, as well as a final report about your event and how many members were involved.

If you have any questions, email LRPC co-chairs Amy Marcarelli ( or Todd Royer (
