GUIDANCE FROM THE SELECTION COMMITTEE
The Board will consider some or all of the following factors when selecting finalists:

Will our membership find the agency compelling or unique?
Is the video likely to educate our membership about a program, agency, or a need?
Unlike other grants, you may apply for any need which is likely to appeal to our membership. We do not prohibit applications for capital improvement, salaries, or any other use permitted by the IRS. You may apply as many times as you want, focusing on as many different needs as you like.

If your agency is selected to be a finalist, we will contact you to schedule the video production.Key Points Regarding the Video
Videos will follow a basic “news segment” format consisting primarily of interviews for you to introduce your agency and explain your program/project.
The videos will be produced by amateur volunteers doing the best they can.
Final approval of the segment rests solely with ABQ Involved.
We will handle production of the video with your assistance. Your agency will be responsible for obtaining the written permission of any person you want to appear in the video.
The two to three minute video will be posted on our website for our members to review during the voting period and will be available to the world forever via our YouTube channel.
Funds will be awarded to the winner within 30 days after voting closes.
