We are pleased to announce that the board of directors has begun review of full proposals for the 15th round of competitive grants from the Mockingbird Foundation, with funding announcements expected by the end of January 2012. Simultaneously, we have opened the process for submitting inquiries to the 16th round, with funding announcements expected by year-end 2012.

This is an ideal time to make a tax-deductible donation to the Foundation. If you do it prior to January, you’ll be able to claim the deduction on this¬†year’s taxes. And if you do it in the next few weeks, you’ll help increase the number of grants that we’ll be able to make in Round 15.
