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 taxexempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service, and may not be a private foundation.
  • While we recognize their importance in our communities, our foundation does not award grants to the following:
    • Capital projects, unless initiated by the Foundation.
    • Fundraising events or conferences.
    • Individuals.
    • 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.
