Review Criteria

In addition to the outlined eligibility criteria, grant proposals that include these preferred elements will be reviewed more favorably, thereby increasing the chances of receiving positive interest from us. These include but are not limited to: 

  • Inclusion of a plan that outlines project continuity beyond completion of grant funding
  • Capital programs or Special Projects with plans for self-sustainability before the end of grant funding
  • Partnerships with other organizations that have similar missions to share responsibilities and resources which may in turn help fill gaps and eliminate duplication of effort
  • Leveraged funds already secured and/or committed to the grant activity from other (multiple) sources and/or matched from the organization itself
  • While not meant to totally limit the interest of the Foundation from funding consideration of other worthwhile projects and programs, grant requests focused on one of our primary areas of focus would be considered preferable during our review process.
