ATTENTION: There are important announcements on the grants timeline and submission for 2017:
Signature Grants: Due to existing multi-year signature grant commitments, no additional signature grants can be considered.
Grant submissions should be addressed to Jayme Ierna, our new Chair of the Grants Committee.
Awards Request Background
Grant Process and Criteria
We prefer to fund equipment and supplies and tend to avoid paying for salary/benefits as we cannot guarantee ongoing funding.
Due to the high volume of grant requests, the Petit Family Foundation gives local New England based non-profit programs priority in our funding determinations.
Types of Grants
Timeline for Grant Process & Decisions
Fall Grant Timeline
Given our two cycle application process, applications will fall into 3 categories: the grant is approved and funded (fully or partially); the grant is denied; the grant has merit but given budget concerns will be re-considered in the next cycle (no action necessary by the applicant).
