Sustainability Grant Deadline Approaching

 

January 25, 2023



The Whitehall Sustainability Committee (WSC), with oversight from Golden Sunlight Mine, was formed in 2022 to help Golden Sunlight rank community projects in the Whitehall area by a local advisory group.

The project funding cycle is once again open and accepting project proposals until February 1, 2023.

In 2022 the WSC funded $135,000 worth of projects in the form of the upcoming playground on Legion Avenue and the upcoming daycare facility next to the Whitehall Schools.

Think big, think about the legacy of Golden Sunlight and what they hope to leave behind for years to come after the mine closes.

Visit the WSC’s website at http://www.whitehallsustainability.com to download a project nomination form and see the strategic filters used by the WSC to grade a project - which will set your proposal up for the best possibility of funding. The WSC searches for projects which cover the five pillars of community involvement GSM is looking for: Cultural, Economic Development, Education, Environment, and Health.

Please visit whitehallsustainability.com for more information or email whitehallsustainability@gmail.com with questions. The committee is happy to assist any applicant with project funding questions and the like.

Applications will be reviewed in February, with project presentations requested by projects moving into the consideration stage for the meeting in March.
