1.  Read the Foundation's Mission Statement and Grant Guidelines (on our About Our Grants page).  If your mission is not consistent with our Mission Statement, your request will NOT be approved.


2.  Submit a Letter of Intent to the post office box listed at the bottom of this page. The Foundation accepts Letters of Intent twice a year. (See our Spring and Fall submission timelines below.)


     Letter of Intent requirements:

        Two pages in length 

              1st Page:  Cast the vision of your ministry project.

                             Be sure that your vision is in keeping with The                                                                Foundation's grant criteria (See About Our Grants page). 

                             Include contact information (phone and e-mail) of person                                                submitting LOI.

              2nd Page: Summarize your project's budget.

                             Include a brief description of how grant money would be spent.


3.  If your Letter of Intent is approved by The Foundation's Board, you will receive Grant Application Requirements to guide you in writing your Grant Application (also to be submitted to our post office box). Preliminary approval of your Letter of Intent does NOT guarantee your Grant Application will be approved.


4.  The Foundation will notify you whether your Grant Application was approved or denied.

  • Foundation notification of approval/denial of LOI.  If approved, Application Requirements document will be forwarded to you.
