Additional Information

It is intended that the applications that best meet the grant criteria will be given preference in funding. However, the Foundation will judge the merits of each application and the amount of funding, if any, based on not only the selection criteria, but also available funding, current Foundation objectives, past experience and history, and other pertinent information. The Foundation reserves the right to be the sole decision-maker regarding funding of grants.

 Application Timeline

• Initial Review: The Foundation will conduct initial review of grant applications within 14 days of the end of the application cycle. 

• Final Selection: The Foundation may choose to conduct a brief phone interview to learn more about the applicants funding needs. A final review panel, composed of the Foundation Board of Directors will determine the final results. Finalists will be contacted regarding their status and amount of grant within 7 days of the end of the review cycle to acknowledge receipt and may request any additional information needed. To avoid delays in reviewing the application, please be as thorough as possible when completing the application.
