Proposals from organizations located outside of the region will be considered only if invited by a Trustee. If you are working with a fiscal sponsor, contact the Foundation office before proceeding.
Eligible Types of Support:
Priority will be given to requests for specific programs or projects. Organizations are discouraged from submitting requests for endowment, sponsorships, seminars, or general operating support.
The Board of Trustees meets three times a year to consider applications and award grants. In order to allow ample time for the Trustees to review each request thoroughly, the following schedule has been adopted:
November 1, April 1, August 1
December 1, April 1, September 1
March, June, November
The proposal must be submitted by end of the day, on the due date, regardless of the day of the week.
Please note: From time to time the application may be updated; therefore, the online application will be available one month prior to the stated deadlines.
The staff of the Abington Foundation are available to discuss application procedures. See contact information below for details. As part of the review process, they often make site visits to requesting organizations. They also reserve the right to contact other funders and professionals in the field regarding the grant applicants under review.
