Organizations exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code may apply for support from the West Point Fund if they currently serve, or propose to serve, persons or communities in any or all the following areas:
The awards will fund projects that begin on or after February 1 and end by December 31, 2019.
Grants will range in size between $500 and $25,000, with most grants averaging between $3,000 and $5,000.
The West Point Fund makes grants to promote innovative approaches to education and community building, specifically to support, encourage, initiate and sustain programs to achieve a lasting beneficial impact. The Fund is most likely to make investments in programs and projects that are innovative, transformational and transferrable.
Organizations are strongly encouraged to submit proposals that show clear evidence of support from or collaboration with other funding sources.
