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. Beginning in 2020, the Foundation will consider renewal requests on a step-down basis (minimum of 10% annual step-down from previous grant award) for applicants who have received six (6) or more grants for the same project or purpose. Grantees involved in the Foundation’s proactive work remain eligible to apply for responsive grants.
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.
