The Foundation does not award the following type of grants:

    •  Grants to individuals.

    •  Individual scholarships (undergraduate/graduate).

    •  Religious organizations applying for programs that are sectarian.

    • Organizations that discriminate by not practicing or supporting full equality.

The Foundation awards grants on a yearly cycle. All applications must be submitted by May 1, 2018.
