Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no minimum or maximum funding amount. Grant amounts vary tremendously based upon the project. Amounts need to be justified using a sound financial and business planning approach. To date, the range has been approximately $500 to $10 million.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation only gives grants to tax-exempt organizations, which include 501(c)(3)s, local nonprofit branches of 501(c)(1)s, government agencies, nonprofit schools, and religious organizations, but only for non-religious purposes. Applicants must hold and maintain in good standing, their 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designation by complying with IRS regulations and in particular, filing the appropriate annual IRS financial reporting forms.

Organizations that have applied for nonprofit status but have not yet received confirmation, may still apply for a grant with the understanding that if awarded, the grant cannot be distributed until 501(c)(3) status is active.

Scholarships, for the benefit of a named individual, are only awarded to the school or college for further distribution.

What is not funded:
-Projects that benefit individuals directly;
-Religious organizations where the funds would be used to further the organization’s religious purpose;
-Political organizations;
-Any group that discriminates as to race, creed, ethnic group or gender;
-Travel, conferences or any form of direct financial assistance to individuals;
-Association dues;
-Budget shortfalls or debt retirement;
-Fundraising event costs.
