Only nonprofits with a 501(c)(3) recognition will be considered or governmental agencies that are to be treated as nonprofits will be considered.
All requests must be from organizations with offices based within the physical boundaries of the State of Texas.
Emailed applications are due January 31, 2018. All other supporting documents found in the application checklist will only be accepted via traditional post, hand-delivered, or overnight delivery to the office by January 31, 2018 at 5:00 PM.
Please note, if January 31st falls on Saturday or Sunday proposals will be accepted until the following Monday by noon.
It is strongly recommended that requests be submitted early even in the Fall before. As a courtesy, if you submit your request early (at least a week or two prior to the deadline) the Trust will review the documents and call should there be any questions, suggestions or to make you aware of any missing documents so that your proposal may be completed on time.
Typically, if submissions are sent early, even in the Fall prior to the deadline the only numbers that may need to be changed are the receipts since the time of submission (if by around the first of January you find your receipts have increased by at least 15% or more since the Fall submission) you may simply call the offices and Patricia Stilley will be happy to update your application form for you.
Once your application form is received you will receive a confirmation of receipt for the form only. Please note, if you do not receive a confirmation of receipt of the application form or a telephone call from our offices within 1 or 2 business days please call and speak with Pat Stilley. Confirmation emails are always sent following receipt of the completed application form. To confirm receipt of the supporting documents please call the office and speak with Jeannie Arnold.
Important to note:
As part of the application, you must complete the Related Party Questionnaire found at the bottom of the required application form. This is a legal requirement. If you are not certain of how these questions should be answered please call Patricia Stilley and she will gladly assist you.
Before applying, please be aware that if your organization serves people of varying ages or even selectively those who are “elderly” but may be under the age the Trust is considering, if you are approved for funding you will be required to complete an Affidavit simply acknowledging the agreement that all funding approved by the Trust would only be used to benefit those as agreed to within the conditions of the document. It is a requirement. Should you decide not to sign the affidavit the grant will not be paid.
Also, the affidavit is not to be manipulated or rewritten in any way. On the required Application form the question asking for the name of the “Fiscal Manager” this should be the person responsible for signing the affidavit and thus receiving the check when funds are paid. If approved for funding and the noted “Fiscal Manager” has changed (either the person has left, or their title has changed) please contact the office and speak with Patricia Stilley, she will reissue the affidavits. Do not revise the documents.
The application and related party questionnaire can be found in Supporting Documents below, or at the following links:
