Application Process

The Foundation will occasionally accept unsolicited proposals from nonprofit organizations with tax-exempt status (under section 501 (c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code) that meet the criteria outlined in the Foundation guidelines above.

Grant seekers should send a letter of intent, not to exceed three pages, to the Foundation. This letter should provide

  • a brief statement of the organization's history, mission and objectives
  • the purpose of the proposed project (goals/projected outcomes)
  • the amount and duration of the financial request
  • a copy of the IRS determination letter substantiating 501 (c) (3) status

Foundation staff will review all submissions and invite selected organizations to apply for funding. The Foundation will review these grant proposals on an ongoing basis. As a rule, the Foundation does not provide funding to any individual organization for more than three successive years.
