Can I include the cost for salaries to my grant request?
No. General, ongoing administrative costs cannot be included in your grant request.
I don’t have my organization’s most current tax return yet. Can I send in my last one?
Yes, provided that the latest version arrives in our office no later than 60 days prior to the Board Meeting at which your grant will be reviewed.
My organization received a grant from you last year. Can I apply for a new grant?
No. You are only eligible to receive grant funds every two calendar years. In other words, your organization received a grant in March 2011; you may not apply again until March 2013.
Part of the target audience my organization’s program serves is adults. Would you still fund the costs?
RMHC does not fund programs benefiting adults and so we would have to break out that portion of the program that addresses the needs of children when considering funding.
What is the typical amount awarded for grants?
RMHC receives applications from a lot of wonderful organizations; however, we try to grant to as many organizations as possible that provide for the well-being of children. The typical amount awarded is between $1,000 and $10,000 with the average amount being $2,500. Please provide an itemized budget specifying exactly what the funds will be used for in the event we are only able to grant a portion of the request.
