Grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to Florida, Georgia, Colorado, and Massachusetts nonprofits in eligible regions for programs in the areas of the environment; education; arts and culture; and health and human services, especially those that target women's issues or people living with AIDS. Priority is given to proposals from Gainesville, Florida; Atlanta or Decatur, Georgia (within Fulton or Dekalb Counties); Boulder, Colorado; and Western Massachusetts.

Grant requests should be made within the $10,000 to $50,000 range and should not exceed 50% of total budget.

Grants are awarded to charitable organizations that are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. No grants are made to individuals.

The foundation responds more favorably to proposals coming from the geographical regions of Gainesville, Florida; Atlanta or Decatur, Georgia (within Fulton or Dekalb Counties); Boulder, Colorado; and Western Massachusetts.

Requests for endowment; annual fund campaigns; sponsorships; and special events are discouraged.

Grants are not made to affiliates of large public charities such as The United Way, The March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, The Salvation Army, etc. Instead, the foundation prefers to fund organizations that do not receive wide public support.

Government agencies, political and religious organizations do not receive funding. Occasional exceptions have been made for religious groups which provide social services in the community at large.

The AEC Trust Advisory Board meets twice a year to consider grant proposals. Applicants are encouraged to submit proposals well in advance of, but no later than, April 1st for the May meeting and September 1st for the October meeting.
