General Operating Support

We will consider unrestricted general operating requests from organizations that:

  • Have missions that address one or more of our funding priorities;
  • Have programs that exclusively serve people within our service area;
  • Deliver effective programs in response to community needs;
  • Are financially stable;
  • Receive and provide strong leadership.

Program Support

We will consider requests to support programs that are highly effective and innovative and do not duplicate other programs or services.


We will consider, on a limited basis, an event sponsorship request designed to raise funds to support an activity or program directly related to an organization’s mission or purpose. We invite you to contact us in advance of submitting a request for sponsorship support to discuss your event. Please check our Funding Calendar to plan properly for deadlines and Foundation board meetings.

Capital Campaigns

We will consider requests for capital support from organizations that meet all other funding criteria. Capital requests include: brick and mortar activities; equipment expenditures; facility construction; capital improvements.
