Thank you for your interest in the Mary A. Crocker Trust.
Grantmaking meetings are held twice a year. The 2017 meetings will be on May 1st and December 7th.
The first step in the grant application process is the electronic submission of a ONE PAGE Letter of Interest, in pdf form, summarizing the program for which funding is being requested (including the amount being requested). IN ADDITION (this is new in 2017), please submit a copy of the organization's (not the program's) most recent annual budget. Please email submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org). Please be sure to include the organization's website address as well as complete contact information (title, phone and email address) for the person submitting the LOI.
If you have questions, please contact Abby Wilder, Executive Director via email (email@example.com) or phone (650-576-3384).
Please note Over the coming weeks, the Trust will be transitioning to an online application process. Information will be posted here. Please bear with us during this time--thank you!

Please note that typically, the Trust receives between 80 and 120 qualified funding requests for each grantmaking meeting. It is likely that for the upcoming (May 2017) docket, 5 to 7 organizations will be selected to submit full proposals.
Details on the information needed in the full proposal will be sent to those organizations that are selected to make further submissions.
The trust does not make grants to individuals, for annual campaigns, continuing support, deficit financing or sectarian purposes. Building funds, operating budgets, scholarships and equipment purchases are given a lower priority.
A report on the use of funds granted is required. The Trust does not seek publicity on grants but may approve publicity on grants that will further their enterprise.
