The Keg Spirit Foundation will consider funding for both new and established projects based on the following criteria:
The organization must hold, in good standing, a current charity registration number.
The project must relate to children or youth in some way.
The program should contain a mentoring component.
Each year, The Keg Spirit Foundation will make grants to successful applicants. Grants are typically in the range of $2,000 to $5,000. The application process consists of two-stages: an initial Letter of Interest, which if invited, is followed by a full proposal.
The initial Letter of Interest must be limited to one page and should include:
A description of the organization and indication of competence in the area of this proposal.
An outline of the project including: a) Who it will benefit b) Design of the project c) Outcomes expected.
A brief (2 or 3 lines) overview of your budget, income sources, and expenses for this project.
Letters of Interest may be submitted throughout the calendar year and are reviewed on an ongoing basis. If an organization is chosen for further consideration, they will be invited to submit a full proposal that will consist of a more detailed application. Please note that funding decisions are traditionally made in the first quarter of the year based on the prior year’s proposals.
The Keg Spirit Foundation does not award grants to:
Projects outside of our market areas
Reduction of deficits
Religious or political causes
All applications are to be sent to The Keg Spirit Foundation at the address below. Please note that we request complete written information, as we will evaluate all proposals based on the information provided. Respectfully, we request that correspondence be via mail or fax.
