The Foundation does not support political organizations or candidates, religious organizations, or activities for sectarian purposes.

The Foundation does not support capital campaigns.

The Foundation asks that Impact and Seed Grant recipients not apply for additional funding for at least twelve months or one calendar year, whichever is longer, from the conclusion of any previously funded projects before submitting another request.
