Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Oklahoma and Texas nonprofit organizations in eligible counties to benefit local communities. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Program areas include health and human services, the arts, and education. Programs should offer significant potential for individual development and community improvement. The Foundation considers grant applications that have a physical location within the following counties: Archer, Baylor, Childress, Clay, Cottle, Foard, Hardeman, Haskell, Jack, King, Knox, Montague, Stonewall, Throckmorton, Wichita, Wilbarger, Wise, and Young counties in Texas, and Comanche, Cotton, Jackson, Jefferson, Stephens, and Tillman counties in Oklahoma.

The Foundation makes the following types of grants:

  • Program Grants: The Priddy Foundation® has significant interest in requests which create or expand program services. Program requests should deal effectively with identified problems and opportunities. In most cases, programs should be sustainable beyond the grant period and realistically match the requesting organization’s mission and capacity.  Organizations should be able to evaluate results against defined standards of measurement.
  • Operating Grants: The Priddy Foundation® considers general operating requests. Operating grants typically require a grantee organization to present a practicable plan to achieve self-sufficiency and may require the organization to enter into a formal consulting arrangement with a Nonprofit Management Service Organization (MSO) to improve organizational capacity.
  • Capital Grants: The Priddy Foundation® considers capital projects for buildings and major items of equipment. Approval is more likely if the project has existing, broad support from organizations and individuals.   
  • Organizational Development Support Grants: The Priddy Foundation® has an interest in increasing the capacity of an organization to serve more effectively in a complex and changing world.  Requests for leadership development/capacity of board and staff, planning initiatives, technical assistance, and technology enhancements are considered. Organizational development grants must include a comprehensive plan supported by the organization’s board, outside professional assistance, if appropriate, and linkage between the leadership development plan and the ability of the organization to achieve and sustain its mission more effectively.
