Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants of $25,000 are available to Santa Barbara, California-based non-profit organizations and agencies to secure endowment funding. The funding source has developed documentation which provides step-by-step instructions and sample policies for establishing an endowment. Once an agency has completed the application process, they will have created a viable endowment fund and valid endowment policy.

In providing these sample documents, Hutton Parker Foundation is not recommending or requiring particular policies and is not providing legal or investment advice to applicants. Each applicant must adopt the policies that best suit its situation, and should seek the advice of its own legal, financial and accounting advisors.
