Before you inquire for a grant, please review the information below to assess your program’s eligibility and fit.
Grants must be for charitable purposes and serve a public benefit through a charity recognized as tax–exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service, and may not be a private foundation.

Capital projects, unless initiated by the Foundation.
Fundraising events or conferences.
K-12 schools, secondary schools or universities.
Lobbying activities or political campaigns.
Religious purposes. We recognize the role faith-based organizations play in addressing human service needs in our local communities and may consider such grants if initiated by the Foundation.
Units of government or veterans organizations.
A qualifying organization must, in policy and in practice, not discriminate based on age, creed, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or sexual orientation.
