- Applicants may request cash, Stumptown memberships, Stumptown merchandise or a combination of the three with total value not to exceed $500.
- Project ideas should be innovative and unique.
- Project ideas should promote Stumptown Disc Golf, and the sport of disc golf, in a good light.
- Project ideas should help grow the sport by encouraging increased participation for players and/or spectators.
- The grant program was not created to fund the sanctioning of tournaments or leagues.
- Community Engagement Grants will not fund tangible assets (i.e. computers/computer hardware, etc.) that will revert to the owner after the project is complete.
- Community Engagement Grants are not intended to fund businesses or business plan development.
- Applicants must be current Stumptown Disc Golf members.

Here are a few general ideas of projects that would be considered for grant funding. This list is in no way exhaustive and applicants are encouraged to get creative:
Equipment, free memberships and/or swag for disc golf clinics.
Rental fees, food, and/or swag for social/competitive events for Stumptown Disc Golf members.
Equipment rental fees, supply costs, food, swag, and/or free memberships for course maintenance/development projects within the Portland Metro Area.
