如何申请

概观

For organizations that wish to apply, the first step is to familiarize yourself with 我们的方法. You may also want to review the Foundation’s general 资金常见问题.

如果您在阅读我们的网站后认为您的组织符合我们的资助策略,请联系我们 Vibrant & Equitable Communities team 在开始申请之前。

为了帮助您准备,您可以预览两者 初步调查 and the 完整的提案 application forms. Additional resources include a recorded webinar we hosted in September 2020 and a Q&A with commonly asked questions specific to the V&EC program.

我们将在收到您的询问后四到六周通过电子邮件回复,要么拒绝提供资金,要么提供在线提交完整提案的说明。

If your organization was a grantee under the former Education program or the Region & Communities program, please contact a V&EC program officer before submitting your initial inquiry application.

资格和支持类型

We provide operating and project grants to organizations in Minnesota. We consider capital grants only in exceptional circumstances. With very few exceptions, applicants must be classified by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt nonprofit organizations to be eligible for a grant.

Government entities may apply for funding for innovative projects. However, we generally will not fund activities that are traditionally the sole responsibility of government.

我们没有资助的东西

Foundations can be most effective by concentrating their resources in a few areas. This means we cannot support many worthy projects outside our program interests. For example, we do not make grants for basic social services; health services; scholarships, or other types of assistance for individuals; conferences, including attendance or travel, except in rare cases; endowments and capital campaigns, except in rare cases; activities that have a specific religious purpose; or lobbying prohibited by the Internal Revenue Code (see note below).

关于游说和公共政策分析的说明: 

The Foundation may consider funding requests for efforts such as advocacy and education to improve the policies and administrative rules of executive, judicial, and administrative agencies; information-sharing that is neutral, nonpartisan, and fully descriptive of both sides of pending legislative issues; and policy research.

As required by the Internal Revenue Code, however, the Foundation will not fund attempts to influence specific pending or proposed legislation, including referenda, local ordinances, and resolutions.
