Proposals must include, if applicable, the names of the executive officers and members of the Board of Directors of the requesting organization, aggregate board financial contributions to the organization for the prior 12 months, financial information of the organization including operating budget, project budget, amounts and sources already committed to the project, other possible funding sources, and most recent audited financial statements (or if no audit, certified by the organization's chief executive or financial officer.)
