To apply, a brief letter or telephone call is suggested describing the organization and the request for which funds are being sought. If a letter is being sent, a budget and evidence of tax-exempt status should be included. If the request falls within the current scope of the Foundation's interests, the applicant will be asked to complete an application and supply additional information as required. The Foundation Board meets twice per year. For our Spring meeting, completed proposals must be received before February 1 and for our Fall meeting, before August 1. Because the Foundation receives many more requests than it can fund, applicants may be notified at anytime during the process that funds are not available. Should we decline to support a proposal, we ask applicants to wait at least one year before reapplying. The Foundation cannot accept more than one proposal within a twelve-month period. Organizations who are approved for a grant will receive the funds approximately six weeks after the Directors meet. Please write to the office listed below: Sarane H.
