- The Family Foundation places importance on sound management of an applying organization, including effective leadership of the organization’s board.
- The Family Foundation only considers organizations that give back at least 80% to the charity. (In other words administrative costs and salaries should not exceed 20%).
- The Family Foundation does not provide grants to individuals but will provide grants to organizations that distribute scholarships to disadvantaged students.
- Applicants must be classified by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”).
- The Family Foundation will provide grants to a single organization when responding to a catastrophic event.
- The Family Foundation does not consider requests from organizations that are similar to or like organizations that are already funded.
- The Family Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests. We accept applications by invitation only.
Note: While the Ed Haggar Family Foundation remains committed to education, we will not be allocating new grant dollars towards scholarships in 2016.
