Term of Contract:

Grants are typically made for activity undertaken in one year. Grant recipients may apply in future years for funding but are not given priority or guaranteed additional funding.

-Existing obligations, loans or debt retirement
-Long-term operating support
-Multi-year grants or repeat funding for the same project or program
-Medical, scientific or academic research
-Schools, universities and private academies unless there is a significant opportunity for community use or collaboration
-Projects aimed at promoting a particular religion or construction projects of churches and other religious institutions
-Political campaigns, advocacy or direct lobbying efforts by 501(c)(3) organizations
-Services commonly regarded as the responsibility of governmental agencies, such as fire and police protection
-Travel for individuals, bands, sports teams, classes and similar groups

The Legacy Foundation seeks to promote respect for all people. The Legacy Foundation will not knowingly support organizations whose programs or services are not open to all without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, age, medical condition, disability, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by law. The Foundation recognizes that organizations may identify special needs in the community and target programs or services to a specific population based on those needs; however, the programs must be open to all people in those targeted populations to be eligible for grant consideration.

Pre-Application Information:

The Board of Directors of the Legacy Foundation may impose a matching requirement so that you can use the Foundation’s grant as leverage for new gifts or increased gifts from donors.
