Steve's Foundation is a small private foundation with limited resources (i.e., me with a little assistance from my family). Typical grants range between $500 and $5,000 with an average grant of $2,600. Total annual grants are approximately $100,000. Funding requests are evaluated once each year (in May or June).
Although Steve's Foundation is small, it receives hundreds of funding requests each year. Due to the large number of requests, I am not able to reply to proposals, accept phone calls or respond to email inquiries—I hope you'll understand.
Grants are made on a selective basis using the following general guidelines.
Per those guidelines, I focus on small, cost-effective nonprofits that help disadvantaged people (e.g., women, children, people of color, chronically poor, etc) improve their lives.
These guidelines are subject to change within the purposes outlined in the foundation's Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation.
Please read the comments at the top of this page before submitting a proposal. I am unable to respond to grant requests and I can only fund a fraction of the worthy proposals I receive each year.
Funding requests should be mailed to:
