ViP Grants

Events organized by Volunteers In Partnership (VIP) are often raising funds rather than breaking even
as they did in the past when Meridian first started.
So where does all that money go? 
Working with the school's leadership, we've created a process for teachers to request funds for special projects. We're calling them VIP Grant Proposals and every teacher at Meridian has the opportunity to submit one or two...or five!
How will it work?
The school's leadership will first determine which proposals fit within the mission of the school before passing them along to the Selection Committee (VIP Leaders, Volunteer Coordinator, and COO). 
If necessary, the Selection Committee will then narrow down the choices before 
passing along to the Voting Committee (VIP Leadership Team and Event Chairpersons - when applicable). 
After reviewing a list of several considerations, the Voting Committee will vote to determine which grants will be awarded based on available funds.
 Teachers will then be notified at the next staff luncheon and parents via the monthly VIP Newsletter.
