The Riedel Foundation recognizes that some programs require time to demonstrate their value. Trustees are willing to consider proposals covering multiple years of support. However, like most foundations, we cannot assume responsibility for the long-term support of any organization or activity.
The Trustees will review grants on a monthly basis. Applications should be submitted by the end of the month to be considered for the next scheduled meeting at the Trustees discretion. The Administrator reports all inquiries and proposals, including those that are initially declined.
All applicants will be informed of the results of their application by the Administrator. If approved, a grant letter and a grant agreement will be sent with the distribution. As required by the grant agreement, organizations must follow-up with the foundation by submitting a final report.
