Please consider the following when submitting a request to the Foundation.
- Is the participation of the Foundation going to make a significant difference in the project or program?
- How are the people in the geographic or subject area to be served supporting the project?
- “Seed money” to launch a new project or program is a desirable type of grant.
- Grants will be made for one year only with no commitment for years ahead should the Board no longer consider the project a high priority matter.
- Priority will be given to new projects and to those that have not been funded for at least one year.
- Although providing money for “bricks and mortar” as such is not of interest, it may be desirable to provide facilities to get a worthwhile project started or expanded.
- The promoters of the project should indicate by what standards they will measure the success or failure of the project.
- It is required that within twelve months of receiving the grant, a report on the progress of the project be sent to the Foundation.
- The Foundation Board awards grants twice each year at meetings in May and November with deadlines in the spring and fall, respectively.
