The Whittenberger Foundation
08/15/17 Postmarked or Delivery
Grants typically ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 to Southwest Idaho nonprofit organizations and public institutions for enriching and innovative projects that improve the quality of life for children and young people. Funding is intended for the focus areas of health, education, arts and culture, social welfare, recreation, and the environment.
The Whittenberger Foundation prefers to support short-term projects. It will consider long term projects which demonstrate a potential for matching funds or funding independent of Whittenberger funds.
In evaluating grant requests, the Foundation considers other financial resources and looks for grant opportunities where Whittenberger funds will make a critical difference.
