Grant Seekers

The Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.

Organizations interested in soliciting Grants from the Foundation are welcome to submit a letter of inquiry.
The letter of inquiry should describe your organization's plans and efforts and should include a concise statement of the purpose of the program proposed for funding, including an approximate dollar amount.

If your organization's programming falls within the parameters of the Foundation's current grant making interests, your organization will be invited to submit a proposal and will be required to complete an application, which will be provided to you.

The Edward And Mary Lord Foundation only awards grants to IRS recognized, 501(c)(3) organizations.

  • We do not award grants to individuals.
  • We do not accept unsolicited requests for grants.
  • We are self-sustaining and do not accept donations.
  • We adhere strictly to helping those organizations and programs who fit within the stated definition of our Mission and geographical location
