Review Criteria

While deciding how much to grant to whom, the Foundation will give careful consideration to:

  • The number of people that will benefit from the project
  • The number of local volunteers supporting the organization and the project
  • The commitment and composition of the organization’s Board of Directors or Board of Trustees
  • The extent to which the applicant complements the services of other community organizations
  • The organization’s fiscal responsibility and management qualifications
  • The ability of the organization to provide ongoing funding after the term of the grant
  • The extent to which the program addresses underlying causes, rather than just symptoms of specific problems; and
  • How well the organization plans to monitor and evaluate the results of the project
