Who we fund

Our grants are generally seed grants and in some cases sustaining grants for established programs. In order to maximize our grant investments, we have guidelines that limit the grants to $10,000 or less to a single grantee. While some grants may be considered which exceed this amount, they must present a clear and compelling need which is recognized and aligned with the Foundation goals.

The downloadable grant application is provided to help you prepare grants to the Big Cedar Education Foundation in accordance with our policies.

All grant applications must be sent to the attention of:
