HINTS

The members of the CLICK! ExecutiveTeam are busy people. Do their work for them.The better job you do of figuring out the what, who, where, how etc. the better chance you have of receiving the grant. We are looking for innovative programs that are interesting to our audience and that YOU would want to go to. We can help you realize this idea but you should also anticipate our questions. Be realistic with your budget. “A massive exhibition of my iPhone selfies along I-40” is a reach. 

*NOT an actual good idea.
