Proposals are reviewed and recommendations made to fund or decline by the Community Philanthropy Committee. They are then reviewed and a final decision to approve or decline made by the Board of Trustees. In reviewing a proposal, the Proposal Evaluation Criteria will be used as a guideline to determine the study's fundability.

Be sure to include all required documentation, including a list of board members with key staff, and a detailed budget for the project. Incomplete applications will delay the approval process.
