Grant Review Process

Trustees meet in March, June, September and December to consider requests.  Proposals are judged on their merits and in comparison to others received.  The Foundation normally notifies applicants of the Trustees' decision within one week of each regular meeting, and applicants receiving an award may expect to receive payment within one month of notification.  Organizations that receive a grant from the Foundation are required to submit completion reports online.
