Peterson Foundation

Application Process

The Peterson Foundation accepts applications for charitable purposes from §501(c)(3) organizations located within its seven-county service area throughout the year.  No grants are made for religious purposes, to political action or lobby groups, or to individuals.

Your organization must pre-qualify to apply.  To ensure that only eligible organizations apply, no forms are available online.  Please call the Foundation office or send an email explaining your request to obtain a current application form.  If Foundation staff determines that your organization is eligible to apply, an application form will be sent to you by email.

The Board of Trustees meets monthly to review grant applications.  The deadline to submit an application is generally the first business day of each month.  The Foundation manager may request additional information or a site visit prior to consideration by the Board of Trustees.
