Types of Grants

Currently the Foundation has three Grant Types for their funding cycles. These types are as follows:

SMALL GRANTS: Designed to be an entry level grant that provides for the achievement of smaller projects or for smaller organizations with limited resources.
MEDIUM GRANTS: These grants are by far the largest percentage of what we fund. The Medium Grants increase the award levels from the Small Grants and add some additional requirements.
LARGE GRANTS: Designed specifically to be harder to achieve funding the type allows for funding of great projects that have larger costs but greater benefits.
