funding guidelines

We ask that all applicants submit an initial grant request. After an internal screening process some applicants will be asked to submit a more comprehensive grant request. The initial grant request must include the following information:

  • Your organization’s background
  • Amount requested
  • Identification of specific projects for which funding is desired and how it will be spent, including a description of outcomes you expect and the population to be served, including the geographical area
  • Specific description of how this grant seeks to improve life opportunities for youth and families
  • Organization annual budget
  • Program or project budget
  • Amount raised
  • Names of current and pending funders
  • Project timeline
  • Contact information for the person who should be contacted regarding this request
  • 501(c)(3) Determination Letter

The initial grant request must be submitted through our online system. You will be prompted for all required documents and information. Once you have created a user account, you will be able to save your progress and complete the initial grant request at a later time, if you choose. You will be contacted if more information is needed. Please click on the following link to begin the process:
