Program Funding Areas:

The mission of the West Family Foundation is to give back to the community and to provide a better opportunity in life for children and families. To support the mission grants are awarded in the areas of public school enrichment, human services and other charitable causes.

Geographic Area Served by Grants:

Jackson, Josephine, Curry and Klamath Counties

Types of Support Offered:

Program support, project support and capital improvement projects.

Do you fund general operating costs for non-profits? If so, under what conditions?

Yes. However, general operating grants are viewed less favorably than project or capital improvement grant requests.

Restrictions/ Limitations:

If you have received a grant two years in a row you will be asked to sit out a year before requesting additional support.

Application Process:

The Foundation has an online application process. Each year the online application will open on December 1st and close at midnight on February 28th. Final grant decisions will be announced in May. During the grant review period, the Foundation may request a site visit or ask that you attend program review in order to gain more information about your organization and grant proposal. Final grant decisions will be announced 9-12 weeks after each deadline.

Preferred contact from potential grantees:

Potential grantees are welcome to call or email with questions at any-time prior to the grant deadlines.

The West Family Foundation continues to refine its grant process. Please review the Foundation website for changes in the process prior to submitting a grant proposal.
