Puget Sound Charitable Grants

Guidelines for Grant Applicants

First, please carefully review the Foundation's Guidelines for Grant Applicants to determine if your organization is eligible for support.

All eligible organizations seeking funding must submit a grant application in conformity with the Guidelines for Grant Applicants.

Please be aware that failure to include the "Signed Grant Agreement - Terms and Conditions" will result in delayed evaluation of the grant application until the Agreement is received.

Finally, please review the second page of the "Guidelines for Grant Applications" prior to submitting your grant application to ensure compliance with the "Document Checklist."

Application questions may be addressed to info@archibaldfoundation.org.

Applications for grants should be submitted on line.

In reviewing grant applications, the Directors will determine which requests appear to have the greatest impact considering the funds available for grants at that time. Unfortunately, this may mean that we receive worthwhile applications that we are not able to fund.

Please understand that a decision not to fund an application is not intended as a reflection on the merits of or value of the proposal.

There are no deadlines for submission of grant applications. The Foundation receives application letters throughout the year. The Directors' meeting schedule is subject to change. Meetings during 2018 are currently scheduled for February 21st, April 18th, June 20th, September 26th and December 5th. Applications received at least 10 days prior to the meeting dates will be considered at such meeting. Applicants may anticipate a response to their application within a reasonable period after the meeting at which their request was considered. Occasionally the Directors will defer a grant decision to a later meeting.

Grant Use Report

If an applicant has previously received a Foundation grant from 2012 thru 2018, a copy of the most recent Grant Use Report must be included as part of the current application.

Notification of Grant Decisions

Letters notifying applicants of grant decisions are mailed shortly after each grant meeting.     

Upon request of the Foundation, the Grantee will permit representatives of the Foundation to visit the premises and review the projects supported by the grant.
