Please review the “What We Fund” section of this website to determine whether there is a potential match between your organization’s work and our Foundation’s interests. We will only consider requests from  eligible non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations for:

  • The development or significant expansion of programs that meet our desired outcomes.
  • General operating support for organizations whose core work fits our mission. Matching funds or other conditions may be required for these grants.

Geographic Area: Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties of Michigan

Exclusions: We generally do not provide support directly to individuals or units of government, nor for loans, grants to support religious activities, capital projects, research (unless solicited by the Foundation), fundraising events or conferences.

Grant Size and Term: The amount requested should be based on the size and scope of the organizational and program budget and the anticipated impact of the program. We will consider multi-year grants where appropriate.

When to Submit Your Application: A Letter of Inquiry may be submitted at any time. Grants generally are approved at our board meetings in March, June, September and December.
