Grant Submissions

The Foundation accepts written proposals submitted by mail or an online submission. Most grants are expected to be small ($5,000-$15,000) reflecting the foundation’s limited budget, although there are no fixed minimum or maximum amounts.

  1. The name of the requesting organization, address, telephone number and contact person.
  2. A statement briefly describing the proposed project or other use of the requested funds, the specific objectives to be accomplished, and the geographic area and target population to be served.
  3. A project budget showing sources of financial support committed and pending, and how the requested funds will be used.
  4. A description of the method to be used by the organization to evaluate the results of the project and a plan for sustaining the funded activity after initial funding expires, if appropriate.
  5. A brief history of the organization and the background and qualifications of the individuals involved, including a list of the Board of Directors and administrative staff.
  6. A current financial statement of the organization identifying all income sources for the organization.
