For General Operating Grants, The Cameron Foundation limits the proportion of an organization’s annual budget that it will provide to the following amounts:
- For an annual budget less than $100,000, the Foundation will not make operating support grants exceeding 50% of that budget
- For a budget between $100,000 and $500,000, operating support grants will not exceed 35% of that budget
- For a budget greater than $500,000 but less than $1 million, operating support grants will not exceed 20% of that budget
- For an organization whose annual budget is greater than $1 million, the Foundation generally will not make general operating support grants.
Exceptions to this provision will only be extended at the Foundation’s discretion and invitation.
As a general rule, grants will be made on a year-to-year basis, with each grant requiring an application and a formal review. However, applicants may seek annual renewal of support for a previously funded project or purpose.
Regardless of the duration of a grant, no grant funds may be used for expenses incurred prior to the date of grant approval by the Board.
