Triad knows that the heart of every community is its people, and so many nonprofits are making a positive impact on the lives of those they serve.    

To support those agencies, Triad started its “Great People, Great Places” Initiative in 2020 – a commitment to making quarterly donations to area nonprofits to help them advance their important missions.  

Because of the positive impact this program has had, we are excited to continue it in 2021!

Every quarter, Triad employees nominate a nonprofit that is important to them, and those nonprofits that receive donations are selected randomly from those nominations.  

Recently, Triad was proud to make a donation to the dZi Foundation — a nonprofit dedicated to improving isolated communities in Nepal.  The agency was nominated by Triad Chief Operating Officer Tammy Wetzel.    

Through their partnership with 13 communities in this country that rests between India and China and is the home to Mt. Everest, dZi is improving the quality of life for the 44,123 people who call these villages home.  Training, education, and basic infrastructure improvements are only a few of the programs offered by dZi that are making positive impacts on lives in this remote nation.

Triad knows that the heart of every community is its people, and so many nonprofits are making a positive impact on the lives of those they serve.

But communities are more than only people.  Animals also have an important role in improving the quality of life for everyone.

Recently, as part of our “Great People, Great Places” Initiative in which Triad makes a donation to area nonprofits to help them advance their important missions, we were proud to support Here with Us Farm Sanctuary.

Founded in 2018 and located in Seven Valleys, Pennsylvania, Here with Us works to provide a safe, loving home to farm animals that have been abused and neglected.  Here with Us was nominated by Triad Chief Operations Officer Tammy Wetzel – an avowed animal lover.

Triad’s donation is being used to help the sanctuary meets its goal of allowing the animals who call Here with Us Home to “enjoy the best and most loving and compassionate life possible.”

To help make the connection between animals and people, Here with Us offers a Pen Pal Program where anyone can send in a drawing or letter to one of the residents – such as the goats Patrick and Darby, Tofu the chicken, Reggie the dairy cow and many more – and receive a response.  What a great way to teach children about responsible, compassionate stewardship!

I am a History nerd.

 

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved the stories of the people, places and events that have shaped our nation and our world.

 

One of my all-time favorite figures from American history is Harriet Tubman – the bold, brave abolitionist and operator of the Underground Railroad who risked her own life to help over 70 people escape the ugly, bitter bonds of slavery.

 

Despite being an iconic, national hero, many from this area are not aware that Tubman was active in southern New Jersey – in the City of Cape May specifically, which she used as a headquarters for her secret network of routes by which dozens of slaves were transported to free states.

 

So closely linked are Cape May and Tubman that residents, stakeholders and local government officials have been working to establish the Harriet Tubman Museum in the City – a goal that was realized in September of this year when the museum opened with great celebration near the intersection of Lafayette and Franklin Streets, in the old parsonage house of the Macedonia Baptist Church.

 

The location of the museum is important, not just because it is housed in a space that is significant to the City’s rich African-American history, but because it is adjacent to the former Franklin Street School:  a segregated elementary school built in 1927 and used as such until 1948 when segregation was constitutionally banned in New Jersey.  Today, the school is a designated New Jersey African-American Historic Site.

Very early this year, Triad was engaged by the Cape May County Library to write a grant to obtain funding from the highly-competitive New Jersey Library Construction Bond Act to repurpose the Franklin Street School into a new public library for the City of Cape May and surrounding communities.

 

Because of my great affection for Harriet Tubman, I was truly excited and humbled to be asked by my boss, Mike Zumpino, to spearhead the application process and write the narratives that would tell, in a compelling way, the intersecting story of Cape May, its deep connection with African-American history, and the need for a new public library.

 

Working with a team of great professionals, volunteers and elected officials, Triad was able to help create an outstanding application that recently won the Cape May County Library system a $3.44 million award – one of just 38 awarded statewide! — to create at the Franklin Street School the destination library we all envisioned when we started on this journey nearly a year ago:  one that offers the services and programming expected in a contemporary library, while preserving and celebrating the notable African-American history of the region.  Though as of this writing the legislation making the appropriation for the grant must still be signed by the Governor, we are all optimistic that the award will be made official very soon.

 

If you would like to learn more about Harriet Tubman and her incredible connection to South Jersey, check out Cape May’s Harriet Tubman Museum online at https://www.harriettubmanmuseum.org/.

Triad has heard that the next round of FEMA’s Aid to Firefighters Grants (AFG) may open in mid-November.

Although this has not yet been confirmed, it does serve as a reminder that now is the time to start laying the ground work for a highly-competitive application.

Each year, the AFG Program receives roughly 12,000 applications nationwide, but funds only about 20% of them.

 

FEMA’s highly-competitive Aid to Firefighters Grants (AFG) Program just opened and competition nationwide is expected to be formidable as always.

Each year, only about 20% of the more than 12,000 AFG applications received are funded.

And depending on what an applicant is requesting, the odds of success can go down even further.

Before writing your AFG application, do you know the answers to the following questions?

  • What phrases are reviewers looking for in the application narrative?
  • What are the project cost thresholds that make some applications more likely to be funded?
  • Which sections of the AFG application are getting the most attention from reviewers?
  • What common errors cause an AFG application to be rejected without ever getting read by a reviewer?

The grant writers at Triad know the answers to these questions.

The work that first responders do, and the equipment they need to do it, are too important to leave to chance.

You need the experience and expertise of Triad Associates to help your AFG application stand out in the crowd.

Our grant writers have participated in numerous AFG workshops and public safety grant writing seminars.

We know what the reviewers are looking for and we know how to give it to them.

Whether you need equipment, turnout gear, a vehicle or any of the many items funded by the AFG Program, Triad is well-positioned to write a strong, competitive application for you.

Call Triad Associates today.
