The Chisholm Foundation welcomes grant applications from anywhere in the United States that are compatible with its mission to support the arts, education and religion. Submitted applications are reviewed individually by the Foundation directors, who may or may not request additional information from applicants. Only a small number of the many applications received can be funded.

While the Foundation does not guarantee any specific timetable for action, generally applications for May and November grants must be received no later than March 1st and September 1st, respectively. Applicants should plan their submission well in advance of need.

Due to financial considerations, grants may be made either in a lump sum or in multiple installments. In some cases, a worthwhile application may be deferred to a subsequent year. The Foundation is particularly interested in new or demonstration projects which, if successful, can be continued and expanded with the help of additional financial supporters. Therefore the Foundation encourages applicants to seek matching gifts or challenge grants that can magnify Foundation funds.
