The Roofing Alliance budget year is from June 1 to May 31. The Roofing Alliance considers funding requests on an annual basis at the Roofing Alliance meeting held in April. To be considered for funding, written requests should be submitted to the Roofing Alliance’s Executive Director by Jan. 1, 2020.
The Roofing Alliance involves itself in programs that can significantly, and positively, affect the roofing industry at the national level. The Roofing Alliance’s role is to provide funding for these projects and enough oversight to ensure they are being carried out in a manner consistent with the Roofing Alliance’s goals.
The Roofing Alliance Proposal Review Committee (PRC) reviews proposals initially to determine whether the project meets all criteria. The PRC will ask questions or request additional information if needed. If the proposal meets all criteria, it will be included in the funding request summary presented to the Roofing Alliance Finance and Financial Development Committee for its review in determining a maximum spending cap. If it does not meet the criteria, the PRC will notify the person(s) submitting the proposal. If it meets criteria, the person(s) submitting the proposal will present their funding request in-person to the Roofing Alliance Board of Trustees at the April meeting.
The Roofing Alliance Board of Trustees reviews the proposals—taking into consideration the Finance Committee’s maximum spending cap—and decides whether to recommend requests to the full Roofing Alliance at the April Roofing Alliance meeting. If the funding requests are approved by the Board of Trustees, the funding requests are presented in person at the April Roofing Alliance meeting for member review and approval. The person(s)/organization submitting the request will be notified within 30 days following the April Roofing Alliance meeting whether their funding request was approved.
The written proposals are to include:
Funding request must be received in the Roofing Alliance office by Jan. 1, 2020. If submitting requests by email, send to firstname.lastname@example.org. If sending hard copies, please send to the Roofing Alliance office:
