Step 3: How your proposal will be reviewed
The Foundation will review all documents submitted with the grant proposal, as well as every applicant’s:
Proposals will not be considered from applicants who are not in compliance with all state and federal regulations.
The Foundation has established review criteria designed to give applicants a direction when writing a proposal. The overall goal of each grant round is to fund a group of proposals that collectively further the missions of the Foundation and the grantees.
Proposals will be reviewed by volunteer committees broadly representing the community. Committee members use their expertise and knowledge of the community to contribute to the overall assessment of each proposal based on the degree to which it fits the overall guidelines and priorities.
The committees make recommendations for funding to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees who have the responsibility to approve final grant decisions.
