McCune Charitable Foundation: Lead Tier GrantDeadline: March 29, 2018
The Marshall L. and Perrine D. McCune Charitable Foundation is dedicated to enriching the health, education, environment, cultural, and spiritual life of New Mexicans. The Foundation memorializes its benefactors through proactive grantmaking that seeks to foster positive social change. The McCune Foundation focuses on the following nine priorities in its grantmaking:
- Capacity building in the nonprofit sector
- Economic development and family asset building
- Education transformation and early childhood development
- Leveraging opportunities in health care
- Local food industry development
- Building links between arts and community engagement
- Stewardship of natural resources
- Influencing urban planning and built environments
- Strategies for rural development
The Lead Tier Grant is designed to provide a deeper level of funding than McCune Charitable Foundation’s other grantmaking cycles for organizations that actively enable other groups to integrate their programming, services, or other capacities. McCune’s Lead Grant category acknowledges the value of those organizations that operate in the background to build the effectiveness of the sector as a whole. Competitive applicants are proven organizations that play a fundamental supportive role within the ecosystem because of organizational leadership and critical role supporting other non-profits from a programmatic or operational perspective.
Amount: A total of one to five grants ranging from $50,000-$100,000 will be awarded for an award period of 12 months.
Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations with 501(c)(3) status, federally recognized Indian tribes, public schools, and governmental agencies.
