Grants to Colorado, New Hampshire, and New York nonprofit organizations, faith-based organizations, and units of government for programs and projects that benefit residents in areas where the funding source operates. The funding source strongly recommends that you contact their office to discuss your proposed program before you start the application process.

Funding is specifically intended to support proposals that address the following focus areas:

- Arts, Culture, and Humanities
- Education
- Environment
- Health/Medical
- Human Services
- Public/Society Benefit

The Foundation trustees have historically approved grants in those areas where family members reside. Family members live throughout the USA, but there are larger concentrations between New York and New Hampshire, in addition to Colorado.

Request for multi-year grants are rarely considered without the endorsement of a Kettering Family Foundation trustee.

Organizations that are not units of government or affiliated with a religious organization must have a current 501(c)(3) determination letter from the IRS. Fiscal sponsorships will be accepted, but only under special circumstances.

Geographic Focus: The Foundation trustees have historically approved grants in those areas where family members reside. At the same time, 90%+ of the grants approved in recent years have been trustee endorsed, some of which are in areas that may be located outside of family residence areas. Family members live throughout the USA, but there are larger concentrations between New York and New Hampshire, in addition to Colorado.

Request Summaries for any of the following purposes are rarely considered without the endorsement of a Kettering Family Foundation trustee:

- Religious organizations for religious purposes
- Individual public elementary or secondary schools or public school districts
- Capital construction
- Foreign based or foreign purpose organizations
- Local chapters of national organizations
- Multi-year grants
- Travel expenses
- Event sponsorship

Request Summaries will not be accepted for any of the following purposes.

- Grants or loans to individuals
- Tickets, advertising or sponsorships of fundraising events
- Efforts to carry on propaganda or otherwise attempt to influence legislation
- Activities of 509(a)(3) Type III Supporting Organization

Key Dates:

- Request Summaries for the Foundation's next grant cycle will run from June 1, 2017 until July 31, 2017.
- If your organization is invited to submit a Full Proposal, the deadline will be September 15, 2017.

The Complete Application Process:

The Foundation strongly recommends that you contact their office to discuss your proposed program before you start the application process.

KFP uses a two-step application review process that operates on a biannual cycle, December – May and June – November. The appropriate KFP Committee (Committee) first reviews a Request Summary. If interested, the Committee will invite the applicant to submit a Full Proposal.

Submit the Request Summary by the due date, either January 31 or July 31. If these dates fall on a weekend or holiday, the information is due the next business day. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your submission. You will be advised by email of the outcome of the Committee’s review in approximately three weeks.

If you have received an email inviting you to submit a Full Proposal, access your Account to complete the process. Full Proposals are due March 15 or September 15. If these dates fall on a weekend or holiday, the information is due the next business day. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your submission. You will be contacted if additional information is needed. A site visit may be requested.

Notice of approval or denial will be communicated to you within 10 days of the Committee’s meeting. If you are awarded a grant, the chief executive officer of your organization will be required to sign a Grant Recipient Agreement that outlines the duties and responsibilities of being a grant recipient. Generally grants are paid within 45 days of the Committee’s meeting.

Faxed, mailed or hand-delivered Request Summaries and Full Proposals will not be accepted, unless KFP has agreed to an exception.

Please Note:

- Only one Request Summary per calendar year may be submitted to any one of the Kettering Family Philanthropies.
- Previously supported organizations are eligible to submit a Request Summary for the same or different purpose, if the previous grant has been fully expended, and all required reports have been submitted and accepted by KFP.
