Applying agencies need to be aware of the funding timelines for each funding cycle and be prepared should the Foundation Board have questions about their application.
Organizations that receive a grant will not be eligible to apply again for 18 months. A specific date will be included in the grant award letter.
The Intermountain Community Care Foundation staff determines if the proposed funding satisfies the grant criteria. Grant requests that meet the criteria are reviewed and evaluated by a committee designated by the Foundation President. Recommendations from this committee are forwarded to the Foundation Board. As soon as the Board decision has been finalized, the applying agency will be notified in writing.
The Foundation Board is not required to fund every project that satisfies the criteria, nor is it required to fund the full amount requested. The Board will use its discretion in granting funding requests.
Lack of approval should not be considered a reflection on the merits of a proposal. There is a limited amount of money each year to be distributed, and the Foundation cannot fund all requests.
