It’s Easy To Give Away Money.  It’s Hard To Give It Away Well.

The Foundation awards grants that address the evolving needs of our nonprofit organizations.  Twice a year, we accept grant proposals from 501c3 organizations that demonstrate the expertise and experience necessary to accomplish their mission, operate under sound financial principles, have a future funding plan and a solid base of community support.  Once awarded a grant, the recipient is required to sign a contract with the Foundation, which communicates that funds from the Foundation may only be used on the objectives listed in the recipient’s grant proposal.  A written report on the funded project is due in the Foundation’s office nine months after funding is received.  The report requests financial data, as well as specific information concerning progress toward the stated objectives of the project
