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 will next be accepted in 2024.
