The Written In Red Foundation takes into consideration many qualities of an organization when conducting grant reviews. Grant applications can be made at any time for the support of activities related to the Foundation’s Mission Statement, Programs and intent. The Written In Red Foundation is generally limited to supporting tax exempt charitable organizations and projects sponsored by governmental entities. Grants are made by the Written In Red Foundation Board of Directors who meet quarterly to review grant proposals and funding requests. (In selected cases, the foundation may consider support for individuals through emergency assistance grants, hardship assistance grants, and medical emergency and distress grants.)

The Written In Red Foundation looks for organizations that engage in strategic planning in maximizing positive results in the primary focused areas. Grant amounts awarded reflect both the needs of the organization and the foundation’s desire to see the presence of other individual and community support of the project. The Written In Red Foundation gives priority to projects that involve joint efforts of multiple agencies and wide community support and sustainability of projects demonstrated in the application guideline.

Generally, activities and projects not funded include:

  • loans to individuals

  • non-charitable organizations through IRS determination

  • international organizations

  • political or lobbying activities

  • ticketed events

The Written In Red Foundation Board of Directors meets on a quarterly basis (the second Tuesday of March, June, September, and December) to review grant applications. Applications must be received 4 weeks prior to the scheduled quarterly meeting to be eligible for review.
