The Frost Foundation
Grants to Louisiana and New Mexico nonprofit organizations for operating expenses and innovative projects in the focus areas of human service needs, environment, and education. Funding is intended for creative approaches to address current and emerging community problems.
Within these parameters, the Foundation provides initial impetus to exemplary organizations and programs, to operating funds, to pioneering organizations and programs which other institutions might similarly use, and to programs which have potential for wider service or educational exposure than an individual community. The Foundation encourages collaborations, mergers and the formation of alliances among agencies within the community to reduce duplication of effort and to promote a maximum effective use of funds.
GrantWatch ID#: 175082
The Foundation reviews applications of human service needs, environmental and education programs in New Mexico and Louisiana from organizations which have an IRS 501(c)(3) determination.
Additionally, all New Mexico organizations must provide a copy of the New Mexico Attorney General’s confirmation letter setting forth that the organization is current with its annual reporting requirements, or is exempt from the registration and reporting requirement.
The Foundation Board of Directors makes grants twice a year in mid-March and late September. The deadlines for receipt of initial grant summaries are December 1 for the March Board meeting, June 1 for the September Board meeting. Applicants will be notified in writing of the Board’s decision within four weeks following its meeting.
If approved, applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal, due in the office approximately nine weeks following the original submission deadline.
