Created in 1989, it provides grants to organizations that serve the needs of children, the disabled, the elderly, and the disadvantaged. The Charitable Trust supports:
- Capacity building;
- General operating support;
- Equipment Tuition assistance; and
- Program support.
Grants are given to nonprofit organizations that are tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and not classified as a private foundation under Section 509(a) of the Code, and to non-U.S. organizations that can demonstrate that they would meet the requirements for such status. Organizations can also submit applications through a sponsoring organization if the sponsor has 501(c)(3) status, is not a private foundation under 509(a), and provides written authorization confirming its willingness to act as the fiscal sponsor.
There are no deadlines for the LOI. LOIs may be submitted at any time
Applications are accepted from those organizations providing programs and services in the United States, the Bahamas, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, or Hong Kong.
