GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING GRANTS AND GRANT APPLICATIONS
We accept applications for financial assistance through December 31 of each year. The Board of Trustees will consider your application for approval only after the close of this submission period.
We typically send out notices regarding approval of financial assistance requests between April and June. Please remember to consider the timing of the funding cycle when submitting your request for financial assistance.
The Foundation donates only to organizations and not to individuals. All applicant institutions must be qualified for exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and generally may not be “private foundations” as defined under Section 509(a) of the Code. An agency or entity applying for funding must state whether it is a member of any branch of the Federal, or any State, County or local Municipal government.
The Foundation does not ordinarily fund salaries and professional fees, operating expenses or building programs. The Board of Trustees, in its sole discretion, determines which requests to approve and fund.
Individual grants or grants to programs will be on a one-time basis. These grants will either supplement other funding obtained by the applicant or totally support a proposal. This will be decided by the Board of Trustees.
If awarded funding, the applicant must complete a notarized Affidavit stating that there has not been, nor will there be, duplicate funding for any or all part or parts of the same project. Additionally, the applicant must file a final report, within sixty days of receiving the Grant, providing proof that the funding was used as provided in the Grant.
Any material received with a proposal will not be returned and will become the property of the Foundation.
