Foundation / Corporation
The Ralph and Eileen Swett Foundation
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for a broad range of activities to positively impact those in need. Funding is intended to assist organizations to create new services or expand existing services. Priority consideration will be based on the degree of impact the project will have on the lives of people in need and the cost per individual helped.
Organizations are expected to provide evidence that their project will be successful, that the budget for the project has been accurately prepared and researched fully, and that the project could not be funded out of their existing resources.
The Swett Foundation is always eager to explore new ways to make a difference so is anxious to hear of new possibilities. If your project represents a new venture, please do not be discouraged from applying.
Although funding is not limited to these areas, by exploring new projects in the past, the Foundation has developed a particular interest in:
-Finding new ways to truly make a difference in the lives of people in need,
-Matching or challenge grants whereby a grant from the Swett Foundation can be used to obtain further funds,
-Supporting adoption of orphans or foster children,
-Supporting the homeless,
-Supporting disadvantaged youth,
-Finding ways to make a pivotal impact on the nonprofit organization itself and thus increase its current and/or future services to people in need. [This does not include bailing the organization out from previous fiscal irresponsibility].
As a small family foundation, the Swett Foundation regrettably cannot fund all worthy projects. Priority for funding is based on the degree of difference the project will make in the lives of people in need and the cost per individual helped. This is a useful yardstick to use in evaluating the likelihood that your project will receive funding.
