The applicant organization must be determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be exempt from federal income tax. Applicants must provide a copy of their IRS Determination Letter of Ruling identifying their organization as exempt under section 501(c)(3) and exempt from Private Foundation Status under Section 509(a). Applicants who are exempt under a Government Municipality must also provide proof to such.
All grant applicants seeking funds for a capital campaign (defined as a campaign seeking to raise $1 million or more) must have received an invitation from the foundation to do so.
All requests from universities or colleges should be approved by the development office of the university or college and submitted to our offices under cover letter from the development office.
The Foundation does not make loans or grants to individuals.
The Foundation generally limits its educational grants to institutions of higher education, including religious educational institutions.
Applicants must seek funding for the same proposal from various sources, as sole support of programs is rarely undertaken.
Due to the number and magnitude of requests received each year, the Foundation cannot respond favorably to all requests. Thus, grants are made without any commitment for future support of operations or specific projects.
