Grant Application Guidelines

The Marilyn Lichtman Foundation will accept grant applications from non-profit organizations meeting the criteria set forth in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

The Foundation will not accept applications from or issue grants for:

  1. for-profit organizations,
  2. political organizations or campaigns,
  3. government entities,
  4. endowments,
  5. conduit organizations which pass on funds to other organizations, other than foundations for specific purposes pursuant to the mission of the foundation, or
  6. individuals.

Incomplete applications will not be reviewed or considered.

If your organization is selected to receive grant funds, you will be required to sign an agreement with the Foundation acknowledging and agreeing to various terms and conditions. No grant funds will be disbursed by the Foundation until such documentation is signed and received by the Foundation.

 Subsequently, after grant funds received have been disbursed by your organization, you will be required to submit a report documenting how grant funds were used. Non-submission of this report will preclude the Foundation from considering future grants.
