Submitting a Grant Request

When is the deadline?

The Trust considers grant requests once per year. Requests must be received or postmarked by October 1st each year.

For 2020 only, grants will be limited to general operating support for organizations that have received at least two Morton-Kelly grants in the past five years. Requests for this cycle will be accepted after August 15; please look at this page for information before applying, as our submission procedure will be changing.

All requests will be acknowledged upon receipt. Please note that the Trust’s grants are competitive – we generally receive many more proposals than our resources allow us to fund.

How will I learn about the directors’ decisions?

Typically, the directors review all requests in November and decision letters are sent before the end of December of each year.

Is there someone to contact if I have questions?

Please feel free to contact Erik C. Jorgensen, Administrative Trustee, Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust,
