Grant Requests

  • Maximum grant amount. In each of the Foundation’s fiscal years, the maximum grant to any one grantee shall not exceed $150,000.
  • As a general rule, the Foundation will not fund more than 30% of the anticipated cost or budget of any project, program or capital acquisition.
  • Unless otherwise approved by the Trustees, single-year grants for the same program may not be renewed after the third consecutive year, unless there is a one-year break after which the grantee may resubmit for consideration. This limitation shall not, generally, apply to grants to Boys & Girls Clubs. The Foundation may fund the same grantee for a new and/or different program for more than three consecutive years.

Generally, funds may NOT be used for endowment.
