“From: "McGuirk, Patricia H (EPS)" < firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: CNSGP Award Notification
Congratulations! Your organization has been selected to receive a FY2020 Commonwealth Nonprofit Security Grant Program award. Attached to this email you will find an award letter from both the Governor’s Office and OGR.
This was a very competitive process. You should be very proud of this accomplishment as you are 1 of 67 awardees. Please understand that we received 200 proposals and due to limited funding and in an effort to try and award as many applicants as possible, OGR wasn’t able to honor most of our awardee’s full request”.
We owe a huge amount of appreciation to Ann Palches who stepped in with little notice and put together a complete and thorough grant proposal. Sally, Max, Sharon and Rob managed the process getting forms submitted as I was in Africa when this grant proposal needed to be completed. Without their diligence this award would not have been received.
This money will be used for 2 improvement projects:
