Registered charities may obtain an application form by phoning the Foundation office, at which time a preliminary discussion will determine eligibility. Grants awarded may be capital, operating or project in nature. Successful applicants must wait two years before submitting another request.

There are no deadlines by which applications must be submitted. The Foundation meets regularly to render decisions. Applicants should allow four months, from the submission of a request, to receive a response.
