We do not give grants to individuals.
We only give grants to 501(c)3 organizations.
Grants are only awarded to nonprofit organizations whose missions impact the greater Louisville metro area and Lafourche and Terrebone Parishes in Louisiana, the home communities of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Gheens. In some instances, nonprofit organizations which operate outside Louisville but in Kentucky are considered for funding.
There are four Trustee meetings per year. The submission deadlines for the upcoming meetings are 5:00 p.m. on:
- Thursday, Febuary 18, 2016
- Thursday, May 19, 2016
- Thursday, August 18, 2016
- Thursday, November 17, 2016
We suggest that you submit only one grant application in any twelve month period. When evaluating grant applications, the Trustees will also consider your past activity; i.e. application frequency and approvals, when making a decision.
