Scope of Funding
Requests for funding may be submitted at any time throughout the year; however, proposal review and funding decisions occur two times per year. In 2015, the Trust expects to distribute approximately $14.9 million in grants. (Final distribution amounts depend on the performance of the Trust’s invested assets.) Generally, the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust prefers to disburse funds as a one-year grant, but not for a period longer than three years. Requests for funding are limited to one request per organization per calendar year. For these purposes, an “organization” generally refers to that entity to which the IRS has issued a Section 501(c)(3) determination letter. If an organization received a previous grant, a final evaluation report must be submitted and reviewed by Trust staff prior to requesting another grant.
