Overview:

The Woodard & Curran Foundation is a public nonprofit organization dedicated to making grants that empower local and global solutions for a healthier world. Proposed projects must promote a clean and sustainable environment (additional preference will be given when those efforts include a defined educational component), include or rely upon volunteers from the community/schools/colleges, demonstrate significant progress on the project defined in the application, and support the public at large (i.e., not a single individual).

Grant Cycle Giving Strategy

Woodard & Curran Foundation's giving strategy is focused on a resource basic to life and often taken for granted: clean water. Whether you live in an area where water supplies are plentiful or where water scarcity is a daily concern, issues surrounding water conservation, sanitation, and safe drinking water supplies are high on the list of environmental concerns.

The Foundation is passionate about progress for a sustainable future and strives to partner with 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations taking action toward that progress.

Track 1: 1 Year Grants

Up to three smaller grants totaling $9,000 with no one grant exceeding $5,000 are available in this category, which is dedicated to addressing the problem of water scarcity through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) initiatives. Projects at levels of grant requests from $1,000 to $5,000 will be accepted.

      • Non-profits that do not have 501(c)(3) designation can submit under the umbrella of a partner 501(c)(3) organization. However, the grant would be issued to the 501(c)(3) partner so the applicant would need an arrangement for them to pass the funds on to the applicant's organization.

    • Not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, national origin, political persuasion, age, physical handicap, gender or sexual orientation.
