How to Apply
Non-profit applicants are invited to apply any time throughout the year. However, to ensure that a request is considered, formal grant applications must reach the Foundation Office by 5 p.m. on the dates listed below (or the next business day if the deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday.)
Once the Foundation receives the initial letter of inquiry submitted through the online process, Foundation staff will determine whether additional information or a full grant application is required. Proposals vary widely as to purpose, and hence the documentation needed for fair consideration also varies. Special supporting materials may be requested. In some cases, member of the Foundation staff may schedule a site visit to discuss the project, see the facility or visit with board members. Foundation staff will notify the organization as to whether the grant is approved or declined.
The Foundation primarily supports Natrona County non-profits. All organizations must be organizations with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
The McMurry Foundation will not make contributions to:
- Organizations whose primary purpose is to influence legislation
- Political causes, candidates, organizations or campaigns
