Contributions are one-time in nature and are for one year only.

Generally, contributions are restricted to organizations that have been granted 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.

To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual.

In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.

Contributions will not be made to or for:
- Churches or religious organizations
- Organizations whose grant request will benefit people outside the service area.
- Organizations that discriminate by race, creed, gender, national origin or sexual orientation.
- Sports teams, sports related events, choirs, bands, fraternal or social organizations.
