Tax-exempt status Operating fund grants Project proposals Grant Guidelines

Tax-Exempt Status

In order to apply for  a J. R. Albert Foundation grant, you must be a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status from the IRS, and be designated as a 509(a)(1) or 509(a)(2) public charity. You must be able to provide documentation of this status.  Please do not apply if you do not have documentation of tax-exempt status.

General Operating Fund Grants

The Foundation's policy is to offer general operating grants - funds not assigned to a particular project - only to organizations with which we have an ongoing relationship. Please do not apply for these funds unless invited by the board. Project/program, research, capital/construction, and food bank assistance applications are open to all interested.
