Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for capacity building and to support services that help disadvantaged individuals. Funding is intended to enhance the lives of people in need, including foster children and orphans, disadvantaged youth, and homeless individuals. Priority consideration will be based on the degree of difference the project will make in the lives of people in need and the cost per individual helped.

Although funding is not limited to these areas, by exploring new projects in the past, the Foundation has developed a particular interest in:

  • Finding new ways to truly make a difference in the lives of people in need,
  • Matching or challenge grants whereby a grant from the Swett Foundation can be used to obtain further funds,
  • Supporting adoption of orphans or foster children,
  • Supporting the homeless,
  • Supporting disadvantaged youth,
  • Finding ways to make a pivotal impact on the nonprofit organization itself and thus increase its current and/or future services to people in need. [This does not include bailing the organization out from previous fiscal irresponsibility].

-Projects involving organizations that have not demonstrated fiscal responsibility.

-While not excluded from consideration outright, projects benefiting people in need through the arts have historically not been funded primarily because other competing organizations at the time were determined to have a more direct beneficial impact. If this describes the proposed project, please consider this information in determining if it is worth the while to apply.
