INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION OF ANTONE AND MARIE RAYMUS FOUNDATION GRANT 

 

Organizations seeking a grant from the Antone and Marie Raymus Foundation are requested to supply the information called for in the online form.  

The Antone and Marie Raymus Foundation’s objective is to advance educational, religious, scientific and charitable purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations within the meaning of Section 501(C) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code.  

Presently, the Foundation limits its support to qualified organizations which serve children and young adults, particularly children at risk or with special needs. Funds are distributed primarily within the Manteca area, all cities in San Joaquin County, Stanislaus County and other surrounding counties. An organization need not be based in the Manteca area or in San Joaquin County to qualify for those categories but must regularly provide service in the respective area.  

Please furnish an answer to each question. Omission of any requested information or material must be explained.  

The Foundation operates on an annual schedule that follows as such: (Nov 1st-Feb 28th)Grant application acceptance window, (Mar 1st-Aug 31st) Grant application review and Raymus Foundation Board deliberation, (Sep 1st-Sep 5th) Grant funding released to approved applicants, (Sep 1st- Feb 28th) Grantees must expend full grant funding and provide a detailed financial report (in a format of their choosing) to the Foundation Coordinator to fulfill their legal obligation to the Raymus Foundation. These dates are subject to change at the behest of the Raymus Foundation; grantees will be notified in such instances.

It is important that all questions be answered as fully as possible. To assist there follows a further item-by-item explanation of the response expected under each question. The Foundation receives many applications. While the Foundation may conduct its own independent investigation and review, the principal means of determining whether your organization will be considered for a grant is by the application you submit.
