Application Guidelines

The Foundation’s Board of Trustees will meet in May and December of each year to consider grant requests from invited applicants.

Once invited, applicants will receive instructions regarding the Foundation’s online application. The online application includes a number of questions regarding the organization and the project for which funds are requested. Also required are:

  • Copy of the Internal Revenue Service letter which attests to the organization’s tax exempt status;
  • List of the officers and members of the organization’s governing body;
  • Current operating budget and a year-to-date financial statement; and
  • Most recent financial audit.

The majority of the Foundation’s grants are multi-year.

Applicants will be notified shortly after a decision has been made at the May or December Board of Trustees meetings. Periodic updates during a project or at its completion may be requested.
