Applying for a Nonprofit Grant

We make grants to tax-exempt nonprofit organizations as defined under Section 501 (c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Organizations must be nonsectarian and nondenominational, and promote diversity and equal opportunity. We also only support specific projects, not general operational expenses.

Applications are accepted from March 1 to October 1.

Grant Terms

Grant renewals are not automatic. When you apply for a renewal, you must provide documentation showing the value and effectiveness of your previous grants.

We reserve the right to audit the financial records of organizations that apply for or receive grants. Your application is your consent to such an audit, both during the application process and after a grant has been made.

Requests for multiyear or capital grants will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

We do not award grants to public schools, private foundations, individuals, labor groups, organizations or programs operating principally outside our service area, or media or literacy projects not connected with an organization.

We will consider requests from religious organizations that benefit the overall community without supporting any specific doctrine.

We do not reduce or donate costs of gas or electric services.
