Additional 2019 Grant Guidelines


Please note the following NEW requirements that are part of those documents.


Grantee Board Approval Requirement

Accepting grant funds obligates an organization to fulfill the funded project or return the granted monies. Therefore, the Four Way Community Foundation requires that an organization’s board of directors be fully aware of the obligation made. Before we will consider any grant request, we require proof of your board’s approval. That proof may take one of two forms:

  1. Board meeting minutes demonstrating a motion seconded and passed, indicating approval for the grant application and naming Four Way, the project’s general purpose, and the requested amount.
  2. A letter on the organization’s letterhead from the board president and treasurer (or equivalent positions) stating that the board is aware of and in support of the grant request to Four Way and stating the general purpose of the project and the requested amount, signed by those two board officers.

Non-discrimination Policy Requirement:

In May of 2018, the Four Way board passed the following grant guideline:

The Four Way Community Foundation makes grants only to organizations that do not discriminate in any of their activities or operations based on race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, marital status, age, disability veteran status or familial status. Applicants must submit a non-discrimination policy that is consistent with these guidelines.
