In its first year the foundation reviewed four four applications reviewed funded one. Now, we fund an average of 6-8 organizations a year. As of 2019, we are expanding our request limit, and now grants can request up to 50,000 dollars — although most funded requests are at a lower dollar amount. Award size will be based on need, guidelines fit, and the amount of funding available in our budget. We will consider co-funding with other organizations. All grants are made for charitable purposes in accordance with IRS regulations.
