When considering the award of grants and scholarships from the Foundation, the selection committee will weigh a variety of factors. The grant application will be reviewed as well as other eligibility factors, which are as follows:
– Organizations must be classified as tax-exempt under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and as public charities, under Section 509(a) of that code; organizations cannot be a private foundation under Section 509 (a). For-profit organizations are not eligible for funding.
– Churches and religious organizations may be eligible to receive funding for activities that are non-sectarian and benefit the larger community.
– While some unrestricted funding is provided, the Foundation prefers to fund specific projects.
