EVALUATION GUIDELINES

The grant evaluation guidelines provide background information about the minimum eligibility requirements that must be met for us to consider your grant application. These guidelines are subject to change. While we would like to assist everyone possible, the foundation is focused primarily on making grants to support individuals and organizations in genuine, dire need. Our funding goals for individuals, listed below, and are fairly diverse and continue to grow. We want to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.   Any non-profit organization that qualifies for public charity status under IRS section 501(c)(3) is also eligible for contributions or grants. We make grants primarily to individuals and occasionally to US-based, qualified charitable organizations. To date we have funded individuals or organizations with the following needs:

  • Medical Services  (i.e., Dental and other physical needs)
  • Hardship relief (i.e., providing basic shelter, resolving hunger, clothing needs, etc.)
  • Emergency relief (i.e., heating and electric bills, low income assistance, etc.)
  • Educational Scholarships (i.e., for widows/widowers in need, etc.)

 

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

The grant application provides the opportunity for you to introduce yourself (or your organization), tell us what financial issues you face, and let us know how we can help. We’ll review your application to determine whether your purpose for seeking funding is consistent with our mission and areas of interest. Please carefully review the Grant Guidelines to determine your eligibility before submitting an application.

An account is required to complete a grant application. The registration process is simple. Click REGISTER and create an account. Once you’ve logged in, complete the GRANT APPLICATION and click Submit.

All grant applications are reviewed by the trustees for a particular funding cycle. Trustees may attempt to contact you for clarification or request more information. You will be notified by email of their decision as specified in the Grant Guidelines. Applications received after the deadline will be considered for the next funding cycle.

AREAS FOR WHICH WE DO NOT MAKE GRANTS

The foundation cannot make grants to individuals that are not US Citizens, or to non-qualified international charitable organizations in the US, or to For-Profit businesses. Unfortunately, we do not make grants for the following purposes and requests are likely to be denied:

  • Recreational programs,
  • Theatre arts or performance arts programs or equipment,
  • Hospice or old age home programs,
  • Churches,
  • Religious, charter or magnet schools
  • International organizations that do not have a qualified domestic 501(c)(3) representative,
  • Private foundations,

This should provide some guidance about our Foundations interests, goals, and direction. Generally, the online Grant Application will provide us sufficient information, but we may occasionally need to ask you for additional information prior to making a decision. We strive to review completed Grant Applications within 6-8 weeks.
