Capital requests, such as those for buildings, land or equipment, are supported when they meet certain stringent criteria. Capital projects must help to meet a compelling community need and offer a broad social benefit. When the foundation participates in a capital project, its support is contingent on funding from other sources. We generally do not authorize payment until the organization has raised a significant amount of its total goal.
Applicants should request the amount that meets the needs of the program and that is consistent with the organization’s capacity and other anticipated or received support. The amount requested should be no less than $10,000.
