Grant Guidelines

Grant requests must follow the guidelines listed below:

 

  • The Kahlert Foundation makes grants in the areas of health care, youth programs, education, veteran organizations, and human services.

  • Grants are for organizations serving the following areas:

    • Mid-Atlantic region

      • Maryland (primary focus)

      • Northern VA

      • Southern PA

      • Washington DC

    • Utah

  • Organizations must submit their 501(c)(3) document under the Internal Revenue Code.

  • Organizations must have a minimum “C” rating with Charity Watch but we have a strong preference for an “A” or “B” rating. The minimum rating for Charity Navigator is 3 stars. The Kahlert Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that spend a high percentage of their funds on programs and service, not administration and fund raising.

  • Grant requests must be for programs that improve the quality of life for the community and individuals with measurable results.

  • Grants may be awarded for capital campaigns, special projects or programs, staffing, and general operations.

  • Grant requests must show a need for the request, its impact, and effectiveness.

  • Organizations need to demonstrate good leadership, financial stability, and a minimum history of 2 years of existence.

  • Grants may be for one year or multi-year.

  • While the foundation may make grants for several years to an organization there are no guarantees of funding in perpetuity.

  • All organizations receiving a grant from the Kahlert Foundation are expected to report back on how the funds were used and the accomplishments achieved with the grant. These reports are one means of staying informed about the project and determining if the stated goals and objectives are achieved. They are also a determining factor for evaluating future grant requests.

  • Updates are typically requested every six months or annually. The report timing is noted in the Grant Agreement Letter.

  • If a grant recipient wishes to issue a press release about the grant, the foundation requests a copy for approval prior to the publication.
