We make grants covering a one-year period. In some instances, grant renewals are considered but are never automatic. The applicant for a renewal grant must submit a new proposal each year, along with a report of the activities of the preceding year.
Grants are never awarded for more than three consecutive years.
Grant sizes range from a few hundred dollars to our maximum of $10,000.
The Foundation mostly focuses giving grants to grassroots organizations with an annual budget cap of $500,000 or less. Organizations must maintain an IRS 501(c)(3) classification. The Foundation cannot fund organizations that use a Fiscal Agent.
Please make your application realistic. Do not inflate your request anticipating that you will get less than you requested. While we sometimes offer a smaller grant, it is also possible that we would not fund a request if we were unable to meet your stated needs.
