Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation funds only those organizations that are qualified to receive charitable grants under the United States Internal Revenue Code and applicable regulations.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Please be advised that the Foundation does not provide updates or status reports for applications. Upon submission of your application through the website, you will receive an email confirming receipt.

The review process for grant applications takes approximately 4-6 weeks. Applicants will be contacted with a response via email by the Foundation within that review period. If the application is met with a positive response, the Foundation will request a detailed proposal and, if helpful, schedule a meeting with the prospective grantee. Proposals are to be submitted only upon invitation. Unsolicited proposals will not be reviewed.

Proposals are reviewed by the Board of Directors twice a year, once in June and once in December. In order to be reviewed in June, proposals should be received by April 30th and to be reviewed in December, by October 31st.

To request a renewed annual grant from the Foundation, current grantees or organizations that have received funding in the last two years should email an annual report and a detailed grant proposal to the funding source by October 31st of each year if the grant is received in December, and April 30th of each year if the grant is received in June.
