- Non-incorporated organizations may apply through an established nonprofit that agrees to provide fiscal oversight (a fiscal agent).
- All grantees must be able to demonstrate sound planning and fiscal stewardship, have a legitimate and effective governing board, and agree to the Foundation’s reporting requirements.
- Public agencies, municipal departments, and houses of worship are not typically eligible to receive discretionary grants.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline: March 29, 2019

The application form is online. The first time an organization applies to the Foundation through the online application system, it creates an Organization Account to use for each application going forward. Please use the same account you have previously used, or create a new one if this your first time applying online. You may contact Foundation staff to find out if your organization already has an account in our system.

The Funding Source would like to hear from applicants in advance of their proposal, especially if they have never applied before or if there is something new to discuss. This conversation will allow applicants to learn more about the Fund and how they operate, and for the Fund to learn about the applicant organization.
