2022 Grant Application Notice

The Foundation closed 2021 with a large increase in Grant requests.  Times are so difficult for so many people across the globe and the complexities of COVID have stretched many organizations.   We have always strived to be timely with responding to the many deserving organizations, but we have fallen behind on the grant process.

As a result, we are closing the application process to any new requests for the first quarter 2022.  Any requests received will not be processed and will have to be resubmitted after March 31.  This will allow us to workdown the backlog of requests already received.

Please also note that anyone seeking a Grant MUST be a qualified 501(c)(3) as defined by the US Tax Code, with the appropriate number and documentation or have a qualified 501(c)(3) sponsor.  Having the appropriate documentation when submitting your application will speed the grant process for everyone.

Thank You, and I wish everyone a better 2022,
