Due to the generosity of the Scheidelmans and Drozes, we, the Good News Foundation, have been able to award grants each year to nonprofits whose mission matches our own.
Traditionally, grants have been awarded to 501(c)3 organizations who evangelize the Good News. These grants, not exceeding $5,000, strive to award new ideas and initiatives with the hope that the financial aid will get a good idea off the ground that can become self-sustaining. While new ideas will get preferential consideration, this does not exclude existing programs from receiving a grant.
The grant process begins by sending a Letter of Intent to The Good News Foundation c/o Pam. That letter must include:
-the organization’s 501(c) 3 status
-the amount desired
-the purpose of the grant
-and how the request meets our mission.
If the Letter of Intent appears to meet the criteria set by the Grant Committee, the organization will be encouraged to complete the grant application in order to be considered.
It is the prerogative of the Grant Committed to change the focus of the grants. For example: some years the emphasis has been on first time applicants or those pertaining to youth.
