Private Funding Opportunities

May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust: Elders Program
SOURCE: May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Rolling.
$ AVAILABLE: Varies. The size of the trust’s grants is matched to the organization’s need, capabilities, opportunities, scale of impact and the program’s fit with the trust’s priorities, as well as the organization’s historic pattern of support from other institutional donors, its developmental stage and the trust’s overall availability of funds. Typically, the trust’s grant will be average or above average among an organization’s other funders, but not the largest grant received by an organization. Consistent with its core value of interdependence and a desire to encourage organizations to develop a broad base of support, the trust prefers to invest alongside other funders and rarely makes grants that represent 100 percent of a project’s budget. Initial grants are typically one year in duration.
ELIGIBILITY: Organizations must be tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and not classified as a private foundation under Section 509(a) of the Code; or non-U.S. organizations that can demonstrate that they would meet the requirements for such status.
Organizations must serve individuals living in the Western United States: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming; or in British Columbia, Canada. 
PURPOSE: The focus population for this program area includes adults 60 years of age and older. Caregivers are also a key population to be supported through the Elders program area, including family members, volunteers and paid professionals. The majority of the trust’s grantmaking in the Elder's program area will be devoted to direct services for individuals, families and communities, but a small number of grants may advance the work of organizations engaged in research and communication initiatives that raise awareness about the issues facing older adults and encourage the implementation of policies and practices that effectively address these issues.

SOURCE: May and Stanley Smith Charitable Trust

Organizations must serve individuals living in the Western United States: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming; or in British Columbia, Canada. 
PURPOSE: The trust’s foster youth grantmaking addresses four strategies – stable homes, physical and mental health, education, and preparation for independence – which collectively support the healthy development and success of children and youth who are currently or formerly in foster care or whose parents can no longer care for them. Much of the trust’s foster youth grantmaking will be devoted to direct services for individuals, families, and communities, but the trust’s grantmaking will also advance the work of organizations engaged in research and communication initiatives that raise awareness about the issues facing foster youth and organizations that develop and advocate for policies and practices that effectively address these issues.

PURPOSE: Grantmaking in the Veterans and Military Families Program Area addresses four strategies which collectively support veterans and their families to realize economic self-sufficiency and a good quality of life: mental and behavioral health and wellness; education, training and employment; housing stability; and community integration. The focus population for this program area includes personnel from the active and reserve military who have served or are currently serving and their families, regardless of discharge status and length of service, with a focus on individuals affected by the engagements since September 2001. Acknowledging that some subpopulations experience particular challenges, the trust’s grantmaking will include support for organizations with demonstrated competency serving veterans in one or more of the following groups:
• People with traumatic brain injury, PTSD or major depression.
• African American, Latino/a, Native American, Asian and mixed-race people.
• LGBT people.
• Women.
• Survivors of military sexual trauma (MST).
• Homeless people.
• Veterans with General or Other than Honorable Discharges.
