About this funder:
Projects we support
Generally, the Mabee Foundation supports organizations or projects in the following areas:
- Social and Humanitarian Services
- Medical and Health
- Cultural and Religious
The Mabee Foundation Board of Trustees considers grant requests at its quarterly meetings the second Tuesday in January, April, July and October. Grant requests must be received by the first business day of December, March, June and September to be considered at the corresponding Board meeting.
The Mabee Foundation only makes grants for construction projects, renovation projects and for the purchase of major medical equipment.
Mabee Foundation grants are ‘challenge grants,’ meaning that the organization must raise the remaining funds required to finish the project within one year of the awarding of the grant or risk cancellation of the grant.
The Mabee Foundation will grant up to 20% of the total costs of the project (with a maximum amount of $2,000,000).
Construction must commence within two years after satisfying the grant challenge. Payment is not made on the grant until the challenge has been satisfied and construction has started.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
