Expectations for sponsors:
- Answer applicant questions regarding the application process. The Dow Sponsor will rely on the published FAQs, guidelines and the local Dow Promise Advisory Council member to provide answers.
- Pre-screen applications before they are submitted to help ensure that all questions are appropriately answered. As a sponsor, you will make sure that the application meets the Dow Promise Grant guidelines.
If a sponsored applicant is awarded a grant, additional responsibilities could include:
- Looking for opportunities to participate, as well as encouraging general Dow and AAN participation at one or more of their project activities where a Dow presence is welcomed.
- Following up with the organization to ensure that they submit the required documentation (project summary) to Dow Promise to show that the funds were used for their intended purposes.
