As you may have noticed, our website got “refreshed” just in time for the summer and we hope you like what you see. Our mission at RLCF is to better communities around us, but we also strive to improve ourselves along the way. So we set out to reflect on the past 10 years [some of us went back even further] and decided it was time for something new. With that in mind, I’d like to briefly discuss changes we are introducing effective July 1st, 2014.


We see the blog as a place to communicate with all our audiences, share who we are and what are the latest activities and programs we’re involved with. We also hope to feature some of the amazing organizations we support and the great work they do in our communities.

In addition to refreshing our website, we’ve made some changes to our granting practice, which we summarized below. You can find more details on our grants page.

RLCF Grants

We are looking to truly form partnerships with organizations we support and our two grant programs are a reflection of that.

  1. Conconi Legacy Grant: multi-year commitment
  2. Conconi Challenge Grant: single-year/donation matching /public campaign

RLCF Online Application

For the Conconi Legacy Grant application window opens July 1st, 2014 and closes on December 31st, 2014. We will not accept unsolicited applications for the Conconi Challenge, but rather, our Granting Committee will approach potential candidates directly.

RLCF Granting Committee

Our Granting Committee meets several times a year to plan, and also review grant applications. Applicants can expect a response 8-10 weeks after the application deadline closes.

We hope this offers some clarity and should you have any questions please feel free to contact us directly.

Best Regards,
Sanja Simic, Executive Director
