Grant Guidelines and Applications
The American Defenders of Bataan and Corregidor Memorial Society (formerly Descendants Group--ADBC) seeks to carry on the spirit of the ADBC and keep their history/story from disappearing from contemporary history. Our emphasis is on continuing education about the WWII Japanese invasion of the Philippines and the experiences of the men and women who subsequently became Japanese prisoners of war
In 2013 we will continue our grant application process that will include the following objectives/initiatives:
* Creative projects providing information about the story of the Japanese Invasion of the Philippines and other Pacific islands and the POWs that were held there or moved to another location by the Japanese for slave labor.
* Development of curriculum that could be utilized in schools (middle school to high school level).
* Development of a play, video production, art display, civic monument, etc. that depicts the story of the experiences of the POWs of the Pacific theatre in WWII.
Grants will be given for fixed duration projects, not for General Operating Support, Endowments, Debt Reduction, Fundraising Events or Sponsorships.
For 2013 there will be $5,000 in grant money available for a limited number of grants.
