These guidelines will be helpful in the application process.

An organization must be a nonprofit group, as classified by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501c3 of the tax code.

Applications should include a cover letter that introduces the organization and makes a strategic link between the proposal and the Keller Foundation’s vision. New applicants are encouraged to use the Keller Foundation online funding request form.  Supporting documents such as a cover letter, 501c3, list of members of organization’s board members, and program and organizational budgets, may be submitted either via email attachments to, or via post.

The Trustees do not conduct personal interviews with grant applicants except upon the Foundation’s initiative.

Trustees usually review most grant requests annually in September with some periodic reviews during the year.  Deadline for submission of grant requests to be reviewed in September is May 15. The online grant request form, as well as all supporting documents, should be in the Keller Foundation office by the deadline.
