Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $8,000.

Eligibility:

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation may also give grants to non-501(c)(3) organizations, but the Foundation retains the burden of proving to the IRS that the activity served a charitable purpose and not an associational, fraternal, social, or other purpose. No such burden exists when the grantee is another 501(c)(3) organization. The mere fact that it is a 501(c)(3) relieves the AMA Foundation of further monitoring obligations.

NOT ELIGIBLE:
- Award dinners and special events
- Capital construction or improvement
- Operating/indirect expenses such as utilities, rent, etc.
- General equipment (laptops, ipads, printers, etc.)
- Salaries (salary expenses to operate the organization in general on a long-term basis)
- Religious organizations for religious purposes
- Political causes, candidates, organizations, or campaigns
- Grants to individuals
- Food/beverages over $1,000
