The Foundation will likely not approve grant applications if for:

-Employee recruitment, hiring, training, salary, or other related costs
-Property rent, utility bills, office supplies, or other related costs
-Raising awareness or advertisement initiatives such as but not limited to social media, television, or print media
-Funding to be given to a separate third-party organization
-University scholarships
-Retroactive costs accrued by the organization such as but not limited to debt, operating deficits, previously funded initiatives
-Loans to organizations or individuals
-Organizations engaging in discriminatory policies or practices

The Foundation will strongly consider grant application funding if:

-Funds are used for physical or tangible needs.
-Funds expand the organization’s physical capacity to help others (Ex: A food pantry requests funding for a van to transport food or industrial refrigerator to store food. Not the purchase of food.)
-Funds are for an organization that exclusively impacts residents of the San Joaquin County and Stanislaus County
-Funds have a direct impact and immediate impact with the stakeholders they seek to help
-Funds help stakeholders in an area of personal focus for our Foundation such as education, healthcare, homeless, etc.
-Funding use is thoroughly outlined in an itemized list with associated costs. Specificity is key!
