Review Guidelines

Before you apply, please review our guidelines to determine if our foundation’s support can help advance your organization’s project.


Submit Letter of Interest

If your project meets our guidelines, we invite you to submit a Letter of Interest. Letters of Interest must include the following:  your organization’s most recent financial statements, project budget (if applicable) and IRS Determination Letter. 

Letters of Interest are accepted throughout the year. Once reviewed, you may be invited to submit an application.


Apply for a Grant

Should your organization receive an invitation to apply, please submit your application. Applications must include the following: audited financial statement, 990 tax form, organization chart and list of Board of Directors.


Site Visit

While reviewing your application, we may request a site visit. We may also contact you if there are questions regarding your application.


Funding Decisions

Funding decisions are made by the Board of Trustees throughout the year.


Grant Reporting

All grantees must submit a final report detailing the impact and outcomes of their Walters Family Foundation-funded initiative. Interim reports are required for all grants over $50,000, as well as for select projects, as determined on a case-by-case basis. For organizations awarded a multi-year grant, an interim report is required prior to receiving any subsequent payments.

Current grantees, please submit your interim and final grant reports through the online portal and refer to your grant agreement letter for details about your reporting schedule.
