Foundation Grants

                                                                

The Brown Family Foundation supports organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and are not classified as private foundations under section 509(a) of the Code. The Brown Family Foundation does not award grants to individuals.

Grants may be identified internally by the board members or by a specific request by a qualifying non-profit organization meeting the IRS definitions.  In any specific year, the entire grant distribution may be determined solely by the Board of Directors and without grant applications considered.  The Foundation does not guarantee that multiple-year awards will be given.

Qualifying organizations may apply for a grant using the Foundation Grant Application.  The Foundation directors believe that a relationship is built between the foundation and the grantee that is based on common goals and basic principles of ethical behavior.  To that end, the Foundation application process requires the grantee to submit a follow-up report 6-9 months after the grant funds have been received.  The Foundation will send the follow-up report to grantees from the previous years.  The Foundation is extremely interested in the success of the grants and their recipients.

Grant Follow-up:

The Foundation believes it is important the all grantees provide information and insight into the use and success of the grant award.  The Foundation is extremely interested in the results, testimonials and stories that bring the Foundation members closely to the work that is done by the organizations it supports.  Follow-up summaries are required of all grant awards. 

As the foundation believes that your input is critical to our mission, the Grant Follow-up report is required and as such, the foundation will not consider further grant applications from organizations that do not submit reports by the due date on the grant application or as noted in the original award notification letter.
