Please note that in order to receive a grant from the Foundation, an organization must be a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Grants are not made to individuals, private foundations, governmental organizations, or publicly operated educational institutions. The Foundation generally does not provide support to annual funds or special events. The Foundation does not provide long term continuing program support and requests for renewed support are considered on the basis of reports received, site visits, and Foundation priorities. A negative response does not reflect upon the merits of a proposal or the quality of an organization, but results from the fact that the number of proposals received far exceeds The Foundation’s resources, or because a given project does not fall within The Foundation’s strategic focus.
