Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations for programs that relate to the areas of education, cultural arts, and healthcare. Funding is intended to enhance the quality of life, primarily for those who reside in the Windham communities. Priority is given to integrated, comprehensive proposals and collaborative efforts.

The Foundation prefers to support proposals for new initiatives, special projects, and expansion of current programs, though requests for routine expenses in established programs may be considered, particularly for essential services to those in need.

Overhead expenses may be considered for the person(s) directly facilitating the submitted project or program, typically for contracted specialists and program/project staff.

Funding for equipment or products may be considered, on a limited basis, when the equipment or product is a significant factor in the outcome of the program or project for which funds are being requested.

Some requests, particularly ones that do not provide essential services to those with significant needs, may be a lower priority after two or more years of continuing funding.

Term of Contract:

Funding commitments are made on a yearly basis. Generally, requests for multi-year funding will not be considered, unless the organization has been invited to do so.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Every applicant must be designated by the Internal Revenue Service as a nonprofit under 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Tax Code, or must have an agreement with another 501(c)(3) organization which will serve as a fiscal agent for the applicant, should a grant be provided.

Unless invited to apply by the Foundation, applicants must provide services in the State of Connecticut, and primarily to individuals from the Windham area.

In general, no grants will be awarded to individuals; religious institutions (unless the program benefits the community at large); endowments; capital campaigns; political or lobbying activities; budget deficits; or retroactive funding.

Pre-Application Information:

The Board of Trustees meets semiannually to consider grant requests. Applications must be received by November 1 for consideration at the winter meeting and by April 1 for consideration at spring meeting.

Applicants are welcomed and encouraged to discuss their proposal with the Foundation’s staff either by telephone or in person. If you wish to do so, please contact the Foundation well in advance of the due date.

Upon receipt of the completed proposal, staff may request additional information or schedule a site visit. Board Trustees or Advisors should not be contacted directly.

Only one grant application may be submitted in any twelve-month period.
