General Foundation Granting Guidelines:

  • The Foundation strongly encourages, but does not require, collaborative efforts.  
  • The Foundation believes community enthusiasm and involvement are essential ingredients for project success and encourages proposals that effectively demonstrate community support and participation.
  • Grant proposals must show legitimate evidence of program sustainability for all projects that will continue beyond the funding period.
  • The Grants Committee encourages organizations to build endowments.

Capital improvement requests may be considered in circumstances that provide exceptional benefit to the community. If the project involves substantial capital improvement expenditures, the Foundation will require appropriate architectural and/or engineering consulting and supervision.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Organizations considered for funding must show proof of 501(c)3 or tax-exempt status.
