Our nomination and selection process is entirely in-house, we do not accept unsolicited proposals or grant requests.
Each year the Foundation board members nominate non-profit organizations that we believe make a good match for our goals. After an approval process we invite selected organizations to apply for grants. Our final selections are made towards year-end and grants are delivered to selected organizations.
