Sprint has established an endowment fund that generates income for grants for education to eligible tax-exempt organizations. Innovative programs that improve learning opportunities in the community will be considered. Grants are awarded based on the creativity of the project.
The maximum grant award allotted is $1,000 per organization per calendar year
- Organizations serving residents of Dearborn County that are currently recognized as tax-exempt by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) under IRC section 501(c)(3) or under section 501(c) are eligible to apply for grants from DCF.
- If a tax-exempt organization is not a 501(c)(3), then the purpose of the grant request must be charitable as defined by the IRS. Grants awarded to non-501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations will be proportionate to the charitable purpose of the grant request.
- Grants are awarded only to organizations whose programs benefit the residents of Dearborn County.
- All organizations applying for grants through the Dearborn Community Foundation must have a responsible fiscal agent or treasurer within the organization and follow adequate accounting procedures.
- Organizations may not apply for any property improvements (buildings, fencing, etc.) to land not owned by the organization seeking the grant funds.
Generally, grants are not made:
- to individuals, except for educational scholarships (which are paid to the educational institute for the benefit of the individual);
- exclusively for endowment creation (with the exception of endowment matching programs);
- to fund travel expenses;
- to sustain ongoing programs/projects; and
- to fund salaried/contracted positions.
No grants are made:
- to support political parties, campaigns or issues;
- specifically for sectarian religious purposes, but can be made to religious organizations for programs that benefit the general public;
- for debt reduction of recipient organization;
- for any property improvements (buildings, fencing etc. …) to land not owned by the organization seeking the grant funds; and
- to provide for programs, expenses and/or equipment committed to prior to grant award date.
