Grants are paid after all decisions are made on September 21, 2018. It can take a few weeks from that date to get checks in the mail.
Your organization must create a new application each year that you want to apply. This also applies to multi-year grant recipients.
The Foundation has three Advisory Directors who approve grants: Chula Reynolds, Mike Reynolds, and CoYoTe PhoeNix. Each Advisory Director has a specific amount of funding dollars available to them annually. Once their respective dollars are committed, their allocation is complete. Therefore, the Foundation suggests applicants apply early.
Please note that Advisory Director, CoYoTe PhoeNix, is only interested in funding programs/campaigns that provide support and/or service to women, children, and LGBTQ+. She does not fund “galas” or “bricks and mortar.”
