Review Criteria

Priority will be given to the following:

  • Nonprofit organizations with Tennant employee involvement; and
  • Geographical focus in terms of where Tennant employees live and work and to what extent the applicant offers its services to Tennant communities.
  • Requests from organizations which have been previously funded by the Tennant Foundation. It's expected that the Foundation will continue to limit new funding to ensure that adequate monies are available to fund previously funded grantees.
