Request for a Funding Grant

All Saints Episcopal Church 2018 Garden Tour 
Request for a Funding Grant

Thank you for your interest in applying for funds from the proceeds of the All Saints Episcopal Church 2018 Garden Tour. Applications must be received by the Garden Tour 2018 Board by October 15, 2017. The Board will review all applications and make recommendations to the Church Vestry in December. The final decision naming the recipients will be made in early 2018. 

The Board will consider the following criteria:

1. The non-profit organization must be a 501 (c) (3) entity under the Internal Revenue Code.

2. The organization must provide services to the citizens of Beaufort County or Jasper County, South Carolina as they struggle with the specific challenges presented by either hunger, homelessness, literacy, or aging. Applications will not be accepted from entities that do not exist primarily to provide support in at least one of these four functional areas.

3. The non profit must complete an electronic grant application form provided by All Saints Garden Tour.  

4. The organization must explain how it screens clients that it serves to avoid waste, fraud, and abuse of its funding.

5. In its financial information, the non-profit organization must indicate that it has a projected 2016 budget under $650,000.

6. The group must agree, if selected to receive funding from the All Saints Garden Tour, to sell 10 Garden Tour tickets to its respective donor list, board members, and other centers of influence. In addition, the group must agree to provide  at least two volunteers to assist with the conduct of the Garden Tour through such activities as assisting with garden hostess or parking duties at the garden sites or providing baked goods for the bake sale held on Garden Tour day.      

If you believe that your organization or project meets these criteria, please complete the form below.  

If you answered YES regarding having a profile with Community Foundation's Giving Market Place, nothing further is required. We will review your profile on the Giving Market Place website. If you answered NO, please contact Debbie Cahoon at the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. 843-681-9100. Debbie will be happy to meet with you and to walk you through the process.

If you have any difficulties registering with the Giving Market Place please call me and we will make arrangements for a personal interview and determine a course of action going forward. 

We are grateful for the many non profits such as yours that benefit hundreds of lowcountry residents. We are pleased to be able to help sustain and maintain some of the services provided by such groups. We look forward to receiving your application and reviewing the history and work of your organization.

Very Sincerely,
