CRUSA Foundation creates competition to strengthen nonprofit organizations

first_imgCosta Rican nonprofit organizations seeking to jumpstart their fundraising, outreach, or overall capacity can now apply for support from a new source.The Costa Rica USA Foundation for Cooperation (CRUSA), a nonprofit based in San José, will issue grants of up to $10,000 to organizations with notable, scalable and innovative plans in Costa Rica.From Jan. 23 until March 1, legally registered nonprofits interested in receiving support from the CRUSA Foundation may apply here to receive funds through the “Catalyst Donations Program.”“The CRUSA Foundation recognizes the important work done by many non-profit organizations in communities across the country,” said Flora Montealegre, Executive Delegate of the CRUSA Foundation. “We want to support those innovative and impactful initiatives so that they are sustainable long-term, and for that we need to strengthen organizations.”CRUSA will target nonprofits whose applications accomplish one or more of the following:Improve skill development for the nonprofit’s staffIncrease the nonprofit’s resource-generating capacityCreate internal resources for generating capacities or models that can be scaled or shared with other Costa Rican nonprofit organizations.Because the Catalyst Donations Program finances the development of a nonprofit organization so it can increase its impact over time, recurrent expenses will not be financed.The proposals will be reviewed by the CRUSA team according to the following criteria: innovation, scalability potential, clarity of objectives, feasibility and justification of the budget, the organization’s capacity for execution, and measurable impact on organizational capacity.Although grants are not limited to a geographical area or thematic focus, additional consideration will be given to the initiatives of nonprofit organizations that work outside the Greater Metropolitan Area and those that are aligned with the thematic priorities of CRUSA in 2019. These include climate change and sustainable development, and human capital, knowledge and innovation.The organizations selected to receive grants through the Catalyst Donations Program will be announced in April.Those interested in participating can visit the website: https://crusa.cr/liderazgo-en-filantropia/This article was sponsored by the Costa Rica USA Foundation (CRUSA).

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones 89 c

first_imgGreen Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones (89) can’t make the catch as Arizona Cardinals cornerback Justin Bethel (28) defends during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made headlines earlier this week when he claimed all the pressure is on the Arizona Cardinals when the two teams meet in the NFC Divisional Playoffs Saturday night in Glendale.Maybe he believes it, maybe it’s a good player on an inferior team looking for some sort of psychological edge.The Cardinals smacked the Packers 38-8 in Week 16, and according to ESPN NFL insider John Clayton, the tape of that game doesn’t lie. Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Clayton’s point is a valid one, and one that has affected the Packers all season. Green Bay averaged just 10.99 yards per completion which ranked 28th in the NFL. With a healthy Jordy Nelson, the Packers ranked second in the same category a year ago, averaging 12.74 yards per completion.Clayton believes this will be too much for Rodgers and Green Bay to overcome.“It’s not going to be the same blowout, but I can’t see this changing,” he said.Saturday’s game kicks off at 6:15 p.m. and can be heard on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. Extended pregame coverage begins at 11:00 a.m. Your browser does not support the audio element. LISTEN: John Clayton, ESPN NFL insider “This is kind of a discount reality double-check and (Rodgers) needs to look at the film of the last game,” Clayton told Doug and Wolf Friday morning on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Every time I saw a Packers receiver, I saw some cornerback from the Arizona Cardinals on his hip.“That’s because the Packers can’t run and the Cardinals can cover. What’s changed? What’s changed is that Davante Adams is now out and you have one less guy to get into the route. I don’t see much different.”Adams, a second-year wide receiver who had been making strides in recent weeks, injured his knee in the Packers’ 35-18 Wild Card win over the Washington Redskins and won’t play Saturday. Adams was Green Bay’s third-leading receiver this season with 50 catches for 483 yards and a touchdown.“You saw how slow those receivers are — the lack of separation. The only thing that Aaron Rodgers could do except for picking himself up after being sacked eight times, was maybe throw a back-shoulder throw to James Jones or to maybe try a little bit of a crossing route,” Clayton said.“The downfield routes are covered and I can’t imagine with a week where the Cardinals defenders have been able to rest, that they’re going to be able to slow down.”last_img

Man killed in crash motorway closed for hours update 2

first_imgA motorcyclist was killed early on Tuesday morning in a crash on the Nicosia to Limassol motorway, police said.The incident happened at around 5.45am near the GSP stadium in Nicosia. The man was rushed to Nicosia general hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.Police said the victim was Giorgos Christodoulou, 65, from Larnaca.Christodoulou’s motorbike was hit from behind by a taxi driven by a Turkish Cypriot, throwing him on the windshield, which was smashed, over the top and the rear windshield, that was also smashed, and onto the tarmac where it appeared, he was hit by a second vehicle.Christodoulou had been wearing a helmet.“It appears a vehicle that was following possibly hit him again. This vehicle is sought by police who is asking the public to help find it,” traffic police deputy chief Stelios Panayides said.The accident forced the closure of the motorway for nearly four hours, causing chaos.Long queues formed, and police instructed drivers to exit the motorway from the roundabout near the stadium and head to Limassol via the old Nicosia – Limassol road through Latsia.The accident prompted far-right party Elam to make a political argument, issuing a statement calling for the closure of the crossing points with the north of Cyprus.“This incident brings back to the limelight the huge problems arising from the opening of the crossing points,” the party said.“In addition to the indirect recognition it gives the unrecognised ‘state’, undermining our National problem, it also many times poses a risk to public safety, since vehicles cross over to the government-controlled area with inadequate checks and without the documentation required by a vehicle in the government-controlled area.”Elam urged the immediate closure of crossing points and called on other parties to “realise the dangers and re-assess their view on crossing points”. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
