The ability to apply for competitive grants is announced to the local media and through this website. A simple application form is then submitted by a specified deadline. Applications from non-profits, schools and units of government will be considered. Grants cannot be given to individuals.
The Foundation’s Grants Committee reviews the applications and selects the most worthy for competitive grants that year. A simple written agreement is then executed between the recipient and the Foundation and funds must typically be spent within one year of receipt.
In general, the Foundation does not approve grant requests outside the normal grant review cycle. Visit our Applying For Grants or Scholarships page for additional details.
