Grant Committee Meeting Minutes

February 13, 2012

The CT Lacrosse Foundation Grant Committee met via conference call on February 13, 2012 at 8:00 pm
to review all grants received for the Spring 2012 grant period.   The following Grant Committee members were
present for the meeting: Sandy McMullen, Rob
Peterson, Mark Duclos.
The following Grant Committee members were absent: Jon Einhorn, Jay Fellows, Ted Murphy, Rob Hoynes.

I) The following grant applications were reviewed and recommendations made by the Grant Committee (“GC”):

a. Mini Tick Lacrosse Program: GC unanimously rejected this grant request. GC asserts the Mini Tick grant request
is to fund the growth of an existing program. GC is not generally
in the position financially to fund the growth of existing
programs and believes that this
growth needs to be funded within the program.

b. Groton Mystic Lacrosse Program: GC unanimously approves this grant request. GC recommends a grant of $1,000.
GC notes that this grant request was thorough and an
example of how grant requests should be submitted.

c. Farmington Youth Lacrosse: GC unanimously rejected this grant request. GC asserts that the Farmington grant request
is to fund the growth of an existing program. GC is not
generally in the position financially to fund the growth of existing programs
and believes
that this growth needs to be funded within the program.

d. Boys & Girls Club of Meriden: GC unanimously approves this grant request. GC recommends a grant of $750.

II) Mark Duclos confirmed the Executive Committee has approved the allocation of $6,000 toward CT Lacrosse Foundation
grants for the calendar year of 2012.


III) Sandy McMullen requested review of the GC $500 limit for new programs. Sandy recommended that the GC increase this
limit to $500. The GC agrees that the $500 “limit” is
actually a $500 guideline and that the GC can always award higher amounts
at its discretion
(factors may or may not include the volume of grant requests for a given period or the economic need of a given
grant request).


IV) The subject of increasing the number of GC members (or at least filling established openings) as well as GC member term
limits was discussed. There wasn’t any conclusion on the subject
and it was agreed that GC members would discuss this further
and make decision in the next
GC meeting.

Meeting was adjourned at 9:15 pm.
