Grant Guidelines

  1. The Foundation limits grant request to the United States of America. International grant request will not be considered.

    A copy of the IRS Determination Letter of Ruling identifying their organization as exempt under section 501(c)(3) must be provided. Government Municipality who are exempt must also provide proof to such.
  3. No loans or grants will be made to individuals.
  4. Educational grants are limited to institutions of higher education.
  5. An organization wishing to apply for a grant must:
    Complete and submit one (1) copy of the grant applications.

  7. If the Board of Trustees feels that it needs additional information, including an applicant interview, site visit, and/or a request for supplementary information, your grant might be tabled until the following board meeting following.
  8. Grant award letters will be mailed no later than ten business days following the end of the month in which an award granted.
  9. Grant applicants requesting funds for a major project or capital campaign ($100,000 or more) are encouraged to seek funding from various sources.
  10. Please keep in mind that every year the Wayne and JoAnn Moore Charitable Foundation receives many more requests to participate in funding endeavors than our limited resources will permit. This leads to difficult decisions the Foundation Board Members must make. Not all requests receive funding. Additionally, grants are made without commitment to future support.
  11. Grant applications may be submitted via email or traditional postal methods.
  12. Applicants are encouraged to contact Foundation staff with questions.
