The Directors meet twice a year in the spring and fall to review grant requests. Grant requests should be submitted by January 31, 2023 for consideration in the spring and July 31,2023 for consideration in the fall.
Tax-exempt organizations providing direct services to children and their families that align with the Foundation’s mission may apply for a core grant or a transformational grant.
Core grants are typically awarded for general operating expenses and specific projects with annual grant sizes ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.
Transformational grants are awarded to developing organizations and established organizations engaged in capacity building. While capacity building takes many forms, it generally involves moving the organization to the next level of operational, programmatic, financial, or organizational maturity in order to advance the organization’s mission more effectively and efficiently. Transformational grants are generally awarded as two-year grants with annual grant sizes ranging from $50,000 to $100,000.
