How to Apply
Grant applications must be submitted in writing—or by using the Grant Application Guide—to the Foundation by April 1 or October 1. See the schedule below. All information regarding grant requests must be channeled through and processed by the Grant Committee, not directed to individual board members.
Grant applications must be signed by a Plymouth Church board or committee chairperson and must include the following information:
- purpose of request, who will be served, and desired outcomes/anticipated results
- grant request amount, total itemized expense budget, and other income sources
- timetable for use of funds.
A final report evaluating outcomes/results must be submitted to the Foundation within 90 days of the grant funds having been spent. Unused funds must be returned to the Foundation.
Annually, funds available for grants are calculated at 3-1/2% of the "Distribution Base," a three-year average of the Foundation's current assets.
