Applications for grants are accepted only from qualified IRS tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organizations. The Foundation will not consider grants to institutions, which, in policy or practice, discriminate on the basis of race, creed, or sex. The Foundation Board will consider only one request from an organization during any 12-month period (our fiscal year begins April 1). Applications are to be submitted electronically on or before October 1, 5:00 pm MST each year for consideration at the board’s following two quarterly meetings. Grants are awarded in February. The Foundation Board will determine if the proposal falls within the areas of interest and current funding priorities. The Foundation Board prefers to fund specific projects with dedicated resources that benefit children of Pueblo County. Significant factors considered are: number of children served and cost per child. Historically our grants have been moderate in size, up to but not limited to $5000.00. Grant determination is at the discretion of the PDNCF Board of Directors. All grant determinations are final. Individual Foundation Board Members may conduct onsite visits with the organization’s representative. Organizations applying for a PDNCF grant may use the grant application form provided on the web site or may use the Colorado Common Grant Application form.
Each grant application should be uploaded as one file, if possible, and shall include the following in this order:
