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
  • a copy of the W-9 tax form

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.
