 How are Membership Grants funded?
125 LIVE will solicit funding to assist the organization in funding reduced memberships for those deemed eligible for financial support. 125 LIVE will solicit contributions from a variety of sources to make-up the income lost in offering reduced memberships. Funding sources will include private and government grants, contributions from individuals and businesses and designated special events which will benefit this fund. A “grant” endowment may be established to support the program needs. 

Program Evaluation
The Membership Grants Program will be evaluated annually to determine the estimated funding base that is likely to be needed in the upcoming budget year. The administrative support necessary to oversee the program will be evaluated annually. It is essential that adequate staffing resources are available to support the program.

Please Note:
Membership Grants will be suspended immediately if the recipient does not follow 125 LIVE’s Rules, Regulations, and Policies. Any violations will result in funding being discontinued. The Member will be ineligible to apply for grants again for one-year following the violation.
