Term of Contract:

The Foundation board is reluctant to approve multi-year grant requests.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Foundation makes grants to tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organizations operating or proposing to run programs for the benefit of Randolph County residents.

The Foundation will not normally consider grants from the Community Foundation Enrichment Fund, or any other unrestricted funds, for the following purposes:
- Endowment campaigns
- Religious or sectarian purposes
- Individuals (other than scholarships; separate application)
- Make-up of operating deficits, post-event support, or after-the-fact situations
- Propaganda, political or otherwise, attempting to influence legislation or intervene in any political
affairs or campaigns
- Tax-supported services (e.g. fire, police, schools, parks, etc.) that are the responsibility of government (on occasion, the Foundation will support special projects of these agencies)

In addition, the Foundation board is reluctant to approve grants to any organization for the purpose of maintaining an on-going operating budget or for multi-year grant requests.

Pre-Application Information:

2022 Spring Grant Cycle:
- February 15, 2022 — March 31, 2022

The Board will only accept proposals for consideration after an applicant has consulted with the Foundation’s Grants & Community Impact Officer (Nick Dunham). Applicants are asked to telephone, email, or submit a letter of inquiry briefly describing the project before submitting a proposal in order to find out if their ideas have the potential to be funded by the Foundation.

Applicants receive funding once a year, either Spring or Fall.
