The Foundation accepts requests for specific projects from non-profit organizations. No grants are made to individuals. Awards may range from $1,000 to $20,000, but most grants will be under $5,000. The Foundation will consider funding organizations several years in a row, but applicants must reapply each year. A site visit may be made after a grant is awarded. Recipients must provide an interim report by June 1st and a final report by November 1st of the calendar year following the granting of funds.

The proposal and documents described above must be sent as a pdf attachment to with the subject heading “Proposal from ORGANIZATION NAME”. We prefer to receive one pdf with the proposal, budgets, financials, etc., but will accept multiple pdfs if necessary. The proposal should include the full contact information of the staff member responsible for the proposal.
