letter of intent.
Identify a mental health promotion related community need that you are trying to address – for e.g. increased gun violence among youth, low-income single mothers in need of support, isolated 2SLGBTQ+ seniors, etc.
Conduct research to understand the need/issue you are trying to address. Look for published research and/or newspaper articles that help you make a case on why the need needs to be addressed in order to promote mental health of the community you wish to support.
Based on your identified prevalent issue impacting the community you have chosen to focus on, come up with an appropriate and feasible project in response – for e.g., peer support group for at-risk youth, wellness programs for low-income single mothers, social and recreational programs for 2SLGBTQ+ seniors, etc.

Create a detailed letter of intent to fund a project aimed at responding to one or more of the issues impacting the community you are planning to support. (Please see the sample letters of intent posted on blackboard to get an understanding of how such letters are drafted)
As you develop a letter of intent, please research, and identify a funder for the project. Please be sure to select a funder that aligns with your issue-area and/or proposed response.

Either identify yourself as a lead staff of a fictitious non-profit organization or identify an actual non-profit organization that would be appropriate to submit the proposal. If you use any content from the website/materials of an actual non-profit organization, please cite these.
