In general, the Foundation does not consider requests for more than $50,000.
Grants are usually awarded for one year only. Projects in areas the Foundation has a special interest may be considered for multi-year funding. Organizations may reapply from one year to the next.
Only those LOI’s that demonstrate one or more of the following relationships may be invited to submit a formal grant proposal:
-Your organization is located in Delaware
-Your organization serves underprivileged children in the State of Delaware
-One or more of the Foundation’s Trustees have an established relationship with your organization
Applications must provide a copy of your IRS Section 501(c)(3) status.
The Foundation does not consider requests for programs outside the United States. Grants are never made to individuals or organizations carrying on propaganda or attempting to influence legislation.
The Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant proposals. All organizations seeking to submit a grant proposal must first submit an electronic Letter of Inquiry (LOI) by August 1.
Organizations are strongly urged to submit their LOI early. An acceptance of a Letter of Inquiry does not guarantee funding.
The Foundation will make its best effort to respond within two (2) weeks from the time your LOI is received.
All grants must be submitted on or before September 1.
The Trustees meet on or about December 1 and grants are awarded and distributed on or before December 31.
