Projects Supported by Foundation Grants

Grantmaking Approach

The Foundation is committed to giving away as much money as possible each year, rather than growing its endowment. This allows it to make an annual three-year, hundred thousand dollar Impact Grant as well as a number of ten thousand dollar “giving while living” grants. Giving While Living grantees are nominated and selected by the Foundation’s donors and the grants are funded entirely by donations from Woodard & Curran employees. Organizations interested in applying for an Impact Grant can find more information on the Foundation’s Impact Grant page.
