Puget Sound Charitable Grants

Grant Process - How to Apply


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 including the required one page Grant Application Profile Summary.

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 Applicants prior to submitting your grant application to ensure compliance with the "Document Checklist."

Applications for grants should be prepared in triplicate and forwarded to:

Secretary of the Board of Directors
Norman Archibald Charitable Foundation
c/o Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
PO Box 21927
Seattle, WA 98111

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.

Application letters must be sent via regular mail. Email applications will not be reviewed.
