We know it’s hard to ask for help in your time of need. We’ve made it easier by streamlining the application process into two distinct phases.
During Phase 1, basic information will be asked about the need in question, including a summary of the hardship. If a Phase 1 application is approved for further review, access to the Phase 2 Request for Assistance Application will be provided.
During Phase 2, the Foundation will request more detailed financial information and supporting documentation to fully evaluate your request for assistance.
Based on your circumstances, the Foundation may request other documentation as needed.
To ensure the Foundation Board understands your needs, we ask that you submit required information in a timely manner. Unfortunately, incomplete requests for assistance cannot be considered and will not be reviewed.
If you have any questions during the application process, we are always here to help. We can be reached at:
