How We Make Grants

Grant Application Process: 

STEP ONE: Request a Short Form Application from The Walter S. and Lucienne B. Driskill Foundation at kmm@driskillfoundation.org. The Short Form Application will need to be completed and submitted at least two weeks before an upcoming quarterly Board meeting. Once submitted the Foundation Staff will review and present a summary at the upcoming Board meeting. 

STEP TWO: If an organization’s Short Form Application is accepted, the organization will be contacted by the Foundation requesting a Long Form Application. This form will provide our Board of Directors with extensive information about the program and organization seeking funding.

STEP THREE: Submit the Long Form Application to the Foundation. The Board of Directors will review the Long Form Application and make a final decision at the board meeting that follows the date of submission. 

STEP FOUR: If an organization's Long Form Application is accepted, the Foundation will contact them to complete a Grant Agreement.

The Walter S. and Lucienne B. Driskill Foundation Awards grants in May and November, however, the Foundation will close the applications when our Annual Grant Budget is depleted. An organization may only submit one application per fiscal year. 

Before applying please make sure your organization or program is eligible for a grant by visiting our Funding Guidelines Page.
