Grant recipients must have a 501(c)(3) IRS status and meet the foundation's funding interests of environmental conservation and/or the well being of children.Traditionally, grant instructions specify that grant recipients must submit a One Year Report before they are eligible to re-apply, therefore limiting application requests to every other year. For the granting year of 2008, we will waive this restriction. Everyone who meets our criteria will be eligible to apply in 2008. In 2009 we will resume our established rule of one application per year with a subsequent one year report.

The submission deadline for Oregon is January 4, 2008. The submission deadline for Hawaii is May 1, 2008.
Beginning in 2008 the foundation will be adding to its traditional structure of giving. They will continue to offer our Small Grants program and in addition we will initiate a Large and Multi-Year Grants program.
