The Foundation provides financial grants to individuals and organizations in the Island Heights area that seek funding for activities and programs that fulfill the Foundation’s mission.
All requests must:
- Explain fully the purpose for which the grant would be used.
- Explain how the grant would further the mission of the Foundation.
- Provide detailed information on the estimated cost of the activity or project for which the grant is being requested.
Examples of past grants may be found on the Projects Supported & Organizations Supported pages of this site. A grant may also be requested as a reimbursement for a project completed or service received a few months before the application has been submitted. The application, together with a cover note, should be sent to the Foundation’s Secretary by mail or by email. Each requestor will be notified in writing, and in a timely fashion, of the action of the Foundation regarding a particular grant request.
A request for a grant can be submitted at any time. The Foundation considers such requests at the meetings of the Board of Director’s which are typically held six time per year. Requests may be considered and grants awarded more frequently, at the discretion of the Foundation. Typically, grants are awarded in amounts of between $100 and $5,000, depending on the circumstances of the request. The Foundation reserves the right, however, to provide only part of the funding sought by a requestor. There is no limit on the number of times an individual or organization can seek or be awarded a grant by the Foundation. All materials submitted with a grant request become the property of the Foundation and all decisions by the Foundation regarding a grant award are final.
The Foundation requires that once a grant is awarded, the recipient must provide a full accounting of how the funds were spent within a few weeks of receiving the grant. Failure to do so may disqualify the winner from the receipt of any subsequent grants.
Individuals and organizations must submit their request for a grant using a copy of the application form below:
