Grant Requirements

Part of our mission is to promote and learn about philanthropy within our family and about what is going on within our communities; therefore we require, of ourselves, that, in order to be eligible to receive grants, applicants must receive a Site Visit from family members, who will then see and/or learn about the program for which the grant is to be used. After the site visit, members must file reports about their visits, including details about whom they met and what they learned, along with their recommendations about the grant requested. 

Grant Cycle Dates and Process

April 1 - May 31: Applications are received and acknowledged.

April 1 - July 31: Foundation members review applications based on the relevance of the programs to our Guidelines; then, based
on their available time, they sign up to make a site visit. Applicants will receive an email if their application is accepted for a site visit. NOTE: Due to changes initiated by cultural and business adaptations association with Covid19, but no longer required, Site Visits may be held via telephone or other virtual method.

August 1 - 31: Agencies whose applications were not elected to receive a Site Visit and therefore are not eligible to receive a grant will receive notice in August.

September 30: Site visits completed, and site visit reports due.

October: At its October meeting, the Board reviews members’ Evaluations and, using members’ recommendations, makes final grant decisions based on funds available.

Mid-November: Applicants are notified of the Foundation’s decisions. Checks will be delivered by mid-December.
