Q. Do I qualify?

A. All grant recipients must be a charitable organization that is recognized by the US Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity. All applications from qualified charitable organizations are considered and are evaluated to determine their relative merits to the other applications in the queue for a grant. That evaluation will be based on a number of factors such as whether or not it fits into one or more of our focus areas ( Humanitarian Support; Disadvantaged Children; Education, Arts, and Culture; Environmental Causes; Animal Welfare). Additionally, what percentage of the grant is applied directly to the end user/recipient versus how much goes to overhead is a factor. No HFF grant funds will be awarded to a political party or campaign; and no funds will be granted to third parties on a pass-thru basis.
