About this funder:



Note: All potential applicants must have a telephone discussion with the Executive Director at least one month prior to the application deadline (before March 1 for spring applications and before July 4 for fall applications) . If the grant meets the Hoyt Foundation's guidelines, a second meeting will be scheduled to discuss the grant application process.


The mission of the Stewart W. and Willma C. Hoyt Foundation, Inc., created to perpetuate the Hoyts' charitable interest, is to use its resources to enhance the quality of life of the people of Broome County primarily through judicious grantmaking.

Focus Areas

The Hoyt Foundation focuses broadly in the areas of:

  • Arts
  • Humanities
  • Education
  • Health
  • Human Services

Organizations may qualify to submit proposals for special projects, capital needs, or technical assistance. The Foundation is particularly interested in assisting programs that meet an urgent community need, that do not unnecessarily duplicate the work of other organizations, that have explored alternative funding sources, and that have some reasonable assurance of ongoing support.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants are limited to qualified nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS.
  • Organizations must be located in, or directly serving residents of Broome County, New York.
  • An organization may submit only one proposal during the calendar year.
  • Generally, if an organization received an award in one grant cycle, it must skip two (2) years (4 grant cycles) before it can apply again for another project (and the grant for which it previously received funding must be closed). 


  • The Hoyt Foundation does not make grants to individuals, endowments, or for general operating support.
  • It does not make grants for economic development projects, nor for repair/ongoing maintenance projects.
  • It does not make grants to organizations that have so many counterparts that to consider one would open a floodgate (examples include: individual scout troops, ambulance squads, volunteer fire departments, churches for capital or historic preservation, schools, PTA’s, chapter clubs/organizations and health related organizations with local chapters).
  • If an organization currently has an open or active grant awarded in a previous grant cycle, it cannot apply, regardless of whether all grant payments have been made. The determination as to whether a grant is “open” or “closed” is made by the Hoyt Foundation.
  • Organizations may not resubmit a proposal for a project or program which has been previously declined by the Hoyt Foundation.
