is it detrimental to ask for a larger sum of money? in short do you deny someone for asking for "too much" money?
Stefanie Murray
10:20
Any questions, you can start queuing them up now in the chat! Thanks, Clyde.
Stefanie Murray
12:41
You can drop your questions here or raise your hand using the “Raise Hand” function.
Stefanie Murray
13:26
If you have any questions after today, you can email the Board at info@njcivicinfo.org
Stefanie Murray
13:43
Especially if you need to be connected with a university partner!
Center for Cooperative Media

All of this information will also be sent via email to all grantees once they are selected.

Hi Stefanie and Consortium team. It would be helpful to get connected to the participating Universities in order to discuss our potential project. Who (or what email is best) should we reach out to in order to get a list of the contact person(s) at the participating universities?
Stefanie Murray
18:57
Hey, Jeff! You can email info@njcivicinfo.org
Stefanie Murray
19:06
I know your project fairly well so I can think of a couple folks who might be good.
Jeff Pierce
19:19
Thank you Stefanie, I will use that email.
Stefanie Murray

We already have a potential university partner at Kean. Aside from our own proposal, they would like more information on the role they’d play. Is there a contact connected to NJCIC at Kean they should reach out to?
Stefanie Murray
22:37
Aziza, yes — I believe Chris has that contact name now or is seeking it.
Stefanie Murray
22:45
We can ask him next.

Hi Aziza, this is Audrey Kelly from Kean University and I just joined the NJCIC Board. I'd be happy to help

Aziza,

Here is my contact information:
Stefanie Murray
25:20
@Craig, you don’t have to have anything formal in place for most of the universities. An email confirmation can suffice; that is what we
Stefanie Murray
25:25
we have mostly done in the past.

Maybe I missed it, but is there a list of which board members are matched with which university partners?
Center for Cooperative Media
27:06
Good luck lol
Stefanie Murray
27:06
We had an example of that in the last round, Craig. Stories of AC has Rowan and Stockton.
Stefanie Murray
27:41
@Lee, yes, but I don’t think we have it on the website in a clear way. We can get that.

Welcome Audrey!
Craig
30:23
Thank you for all the great answers
Joe Campbell
31:09
We are allowed to utilize a board member as our university partner, correct?
Stefanie Murray
31:42
@Joe, you can! Carl Hausman served in that role for a project last round.
Stefanie Murray
32:23
Last round, the Board decided that a 10% cap would be applied to overhead requests.
Jeff Pierce
34:08
Follow up on the 10%: If a non-profit partner is allocating salaried resources that did real work (not fiscal transaction), I can probably assume their staff can exceed 10% of the grant if that is how it works out?
Stefanie Murray
34:40
Yes, if your nonprofit partner is doing more than just fiscal sponsorship but are a PARTNER in the work, they could certainly be in the budget.
Jeff Pierce
34:49
Thanks.
Craig
36:17
Question popped to mind. What if two applicants want to combine their projects ?
Center for Cooperative Media
38:01
We can make that happen.
Ana Pazmino
38:04
yes please
Center for Cooperative Media
38:07
We'll send out an email with details.
Center for Cooperative Media

Center for Cooperative Media
40:54
Can do!

Aziza I see you, you're up next.

I agree too. Even though we didn’t get the grant, we still started our program using donations. So I was really excited to see the 2nd round of funding.
Stefanie Murray
50:56
Oh nice, Aziza!
Stefanie Murray
51:09
Any other questions?
Stefanie Murray

If not we will wrap up 🙂

I have to slip off to take my daughter to swim class. Nice to see you all and email us if you have questions!

The ideal of major donors, individuals, supporting this is huge. As someone new to philanthropy I think it is so interesting that most philanthropic dollars come from individuals. I feel that most non profit news orgs get there money from foundations…
