Director’s Discretionary Fund

The William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund is fortunate to be able to provide modest support for special community projects. Grants of up to $5,000 are made at the discretion of the executive director, and grants of up to $10,000 are made at the discretion of the lead trustee and the executive director.

To apply, mail or email a request on your organization’s letter head addressed to David Addams, executive director. Please include the following information in the letter: a brief description of the project, amount requested, and timeframe. Also, include a copy of your 501(c)(3) letter of determination.

Although the discretionary grants are not restricted by the guidelines of our strategic requests for proposal processes, please pay attention to our mission and strategic approaches in order to know what we will likely find worth funding outside of our current grant options.
