Our Grant Giving Guidelines


As of June 2021, The Driskill Foundation has revised its grantmaking strategy. It is essential to be clear to grant seekers that most of our grantmaking is dedicated to furthering the stability of our recently funded programs/programs fitting our mission and goals. Therefore, we generally will no longer accept unsolicited proposals.
We may consider unsolicited proposals that meet our grant guidelines from time to time, although very few are selected for funding.
Before submitting a proposal, we recommend that you carefully read “What the Driskill Foundation Funds,” which will help applicants determine whether your idea for a grant fits our grantmaking strategy.

Organizations and programs must be consistent with The Driskill Foundation's mission and registered under the 501c3 guidelines. Click here.

Previous grants that focus on developing Curiosity and Creativity needing additional funding can email with a brief explanation of your program. You will receive a timely response regarding the next steps.
