Estimated Size of Grant:

You are allowed to request between $25,000 and $75,000 for your organization/project.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants and projects:
- Only 501(c)3 organizations will be considered for funding
- Management of the organization (and project) overseen by reliable, ethical, and experienced personnel
- Project plans need to demonstrate the ability to achieve results
- No organization that discriminates in any way (age, race, national origin, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or religious belief) will be considered for funding

A given organization is only eligible to receive a grant from RSFWF every 3 years. For example, if a non-profit was funded during the 2019-2020 grant cycle and received funds in the spring of 2020, it is eligible to apply for a grant in the current grant cycle. This limitation pertains not only to a given project, but to the organization as well.

RSFWF does not provide grants to fund capital campaigns or endowments.
