Grant Guidelines & Requirements

  • Requests are considered  from organizations that qualify as tax-exempt under Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Service code and are not private foundations as defined in that code.
  • Special consideration is given to organizations and programs that benefit children, youth and families.
  • Donations will be awarded primarily to organizations located in and benefiting residents in The Puget Sound Area.
  • Donations to national organizations conducting local fund drives will be made primarily only for specific programs which benefit their work within the South Puget Sound area.
  • We encourage collaborative efforts among organizations which foster other community involvement such as matching funds, public and/or private.
  • Only one grant is made to a project within any given year, though an organization may apply for more than one project within the same year.
  • Grants are generally limited to no more than 10% of total operating revenue.
  • Organizations must carry out full control of donated funds, using them as requested and evaluate/report on the program’s effectiveness.
  • We reserve the right to demand monies returned if knowledge becomes aware to us that those funds are not being used as honored.
  • No gifts are to be given as a result of our funding (e.g. flowers, baskets, plaques, invites to events, etc.) All funds are to be used directly for the project/programming funded.
