  • Are new and require start-up funds;

Estimated Size of Grant:

Grants generally range from $500 to $5,000.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible to apply for funding, an organization must:
-Be classified as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; or classified as an organization under Section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code; and
-Be located in or provide service to residents within the Eveleth Area Community Foundation service area. This area is defined as the Eveleth-Gilbert School District geographic boundary. If more information or clarification is needed on the service area, applicants are encouraged to contact the Eveleth Area Community Foundation.

Note: Unrestricted funds cannot provide long-term support for any purpose. Therefore, agencies must have the financial potential to sustain a program after the Foundation’s funding has ended. However, during critical times, one-time grant awards for general operating support are intended to provide temporary assistance.

The following areas are of low priority and usually will not be considered for funding: activities that are traditionally supported or provided by government; transportation costs for school field trips.

The Foundation does not make grants for the following: Endowments; religious organizations for religious activities; medical research; debt retirement; requests from re-granting organizations for funding to be used for their own grant making activities; individuals (except scholarships initiated or managed by the Eveleth Area Community Foundation); political organizations or campaigns; tickets for benefits; telephone solicitations; fund-raising drives or activities; and organizations with a substantial part of their purpose the influencing of legislation. Grant awards may not be used retroactively.
