Caring for Community

Caring for Community

 

Helping communities, one program at a time.

At HomeServe, caring for communities is in the fabric of our corporate culture. We are committed to putting people at the heart of everything we do, and that includes our social responsibility. The HomeServe Cares Foundation (HSCF) grant program is one of many initiatives designed to help communities improve quality of life for their residents. The HSCF grant program is intended to help organizations in communities jump-start a project for residents or to infuse funds into existing programs.

This year is our initial launch of the HSCF grant program, and our 2019 goal is to make a significant impact. Awards will range from $5,000 to $25,000 and several will be available for funding each quarter between April 2019 and March 2020.

Grant Selection Process

Grant recipients will be selected by representatives of HomeServe. Projects will be judged on the degree to which their goals make a meaningful impact in the community, and that meet all other selection criteria.

More specifically, the projects will be assessed on:

  • Impact (55 points): The proposed project addresses a clear need that brings positive change to the community and effectively engages residents. The project also demonstrates the ability to accelerate a project, or use of the funds will dramatically improve existing outcomes of a community-based program.
  • Execution (30 points): Applicants demonstrate capacity to deliver the desired outcome of the project on time and within awarded budget, or have a track record of success in running their community-based program.
  • Innovation (15 points): The project demonstrates creativity, aesthetic beauty, unusual design or engagement elements, and/or the potential to spark additional community change.

HSCF reserves the right to make funding decisions based on other criteria, in addition to those described above.
