*Please note that if you do use a Word Document format, you MUST still answer all the questions that are asked on our PDF and online version.
Please note these requirements:
- The Outcomes/Expectations Report must be included WITH your application. Health outcomes for your project should be specific and measurable (ex: 25 people will quit smoking), not vague or general. You should also explain HOW you will measure outcomes. That form can be emailed to the Grant Coordinator at email@example.com. If you need clarification, the “Outputs & Outcomes with Examples” link below can help. The Outcomes/Expectations Report form must then also be completed at the end of your grant cycle to report how your goals were achieved. A PDF version of the report is below.
- IF you are re-applying before your current contract period has finished and before your follow-up report would be due, you MUST give a summary of how your goals are being met THUS far before you will be approved for another grant.
- 501c3 documentation must be less than 10 years old.
- Provide clear financials: the budget for the project and overall organization budget. A 990 and/or audited financial statement may also be requested at the Grant Coordinator’s discretion.
- Provide a list of your Board members and a bio of any persons administering the program and responsible for the grant money.
- You must review your application for spelling and grammar errors.
The grant application will be evaluated by committee members who are responsible for making recommendations to the board. The grants are due to the Foundation (in our office) no later than May 1st and November 1st each year. The Grant Coordinator will contact the applicant if any questions arise during the evaluation process. For May 1st applications a Board of Directors vote will be at the July meeting. For November 1st applications a Board of Directors vote will be at the January meeting. Letters of intent will be mailed shortly after these votes.
ALL GRANT DECISIONS ARE FINAL.
