- The Valley Foundation welcomes grant requests from non-profit organizations defined as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) or any applicable statute of the Internal Revenue code that provide services in Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton.

- To be considered for a grant, all applicants must demonstrate a commitment to a policy of non- discrimination on the basis of age, sex, religion, national origin and sexual preference, in all aspects of organizational operations -- hiring, leadership, and service provision.
- Individuals are not eligible for grants but can be eligible for academic scholarships.
- Projects that support religious activities, endowment campaigns, lobbying, travel, previously incurred debts, or funding deficits generally will not receive consideration.
- The Valley Community Foundation does not provide permanent funding for projects.
- Most grants are made for one to three years, with continuing support contingent upon availability of support and achievement of stated measures and benchmarks.
- There are times, however, when requests for longer-term funding are considered and supported, in accordance with the Foundation's strategic goal to put community assets on solid ground.
