Awards Process

OUR VISION:
The Grimes‐King Foundation will work as a change agent, advocating for low‐income elderly women of African descent, and also act as a catalyst to develop needed resources to meet their needs. It will leverage its resources through partnerships and focus funding.

OUR FUNDING CONSIDERATIONS & PARAMETERS:
1. The Grimes‐King Foundation primarily funds direct program services benefiting our  constituents. However, under special circumstance, we will consider funding well-defined administrative expenses and/or capital requirements.
2. Our average grant size is $15,000. We generally make one-year grants. Multi-year grants are by invitation only.
3. The Board appreciates grantees who acknowledge Grimes‐King Foundation grants awarded, and recognizes the added value collaborations offer to expand access and improve service delivery.
4. Budget Narratives must delineate – by line item ‐ the expenditures related to the activities for which you are seeking Grimes King funding.
5. If your organization is a part of a national or regional organization, your budget narrative must include the amount that the national or regional organization contributes to your efforts, generally, and to the initiative we are asked to fund.

We are particularly grateful to you for your continued support of elderly women of African descent. We ask that you complete a combined report and grant application. Having listened to your feedback, we have worked to create a more streamlined process: The Grant Report in Section A provides critical information about how our most recent grant funds were used to achieve your organization’s/project’s goals/objectives. The Grant Application in Section B outlines your request for a new grant, should you plan to apply.
