Thanks for your interest in the Furthur Foundation. Our executive director and our board of directors meet once a year, usually in the fall, to consider and select worthy causes. There is no deadline for applications.
Nearly all of our grants are between $1,000 and $5,000. This is not much money, and we therefore do not ask for much work from you.
FYI, We tend to support smaller, grassroots and community-based organizations whose orientation is to apply the money directly toward realizing their goals.
These range from providing food and shelter to planting trees, from children’s summer recreation programs to activist training camps, from educating about endangered plants to preserving the culture of endangered peoples.
What we do not fund:
- Organizations without 501-(c)(3) status
- Organizations with budgets over $1 million
