General Guidelines

Whenever possible, the Foundation would prefer to leverage its grant by either supporting a matching grant made by another organization or itself issuing such a grant.

Grants are generally at least $5,000 and no more than $50,000 per year.

There will generally be a two year waiting period before organizations can reapply for another grant after a successful application.
