The Foundation will not consider requests for endowments, capital construction, deficit financing, scholarships, fellowships, loans or grants to individuals.

Pre-Application Information:

The first step in applying to the Foundation is a short letter of inquiry.

All letters are reviewed to determine if they fall within the Foundation’s priority areas. Those that do not are immediately declined. Projects that fit within the Foundation’s priority areas will then be asked to prepare a full proposal for consideration by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

The Board makes funding decisions two times a year in the spring and the fall. Proposal deadlines are June 1st and December 1st.
