Core Support Grants
Core Support categories are based on the interests of donors who have established funds to support a variety of focus areas. These grants provide multi-year support for administrative expenses, infrastructure costs, and programs. The most informative applications will demonstrate high quality and effective programming, and will have a strategic plan and an annual audit. Grant applications for multi-year support are accepted every three years, by the first Friday of March, for the funding categories reflected below. Applications are due March 5, 2021. Applications will next be accepted in 2024.
