Policy Guidelines and Application Procedures
Pursuant to the directions contained in the Will of Susan Lee Hunt, who created the Pitcairn-Crabbe Foundation, the Foundationís Directors have adopted the following policy guidelines for the Foundationís support of charitable purposes.
Priority will be given to proposals that not only fit at least one of the following four categories, but also demonstrate the greatest likelihood of achieving measurable results:
An effort will be made over time to balance the amount of grants made to beneficiaries in the several categories.
Grants will ordinarily be limited to agencies and institutions within a 100-mile radius of Pittsburgh.
In the selection of projects for potential funding, preference will be given to proposals that:
Grants will not be made in the fields of medical needs of hospitals and scientific causes, the arts, endowments and annual appeals of national organizations.
The Board of Directors of the Pitcairn-Crabbe Foundation normally meets three times a year to review proposals and make funding decisions. Interested agencies that meet the specified guidelines must complete the Foundationís on-line grant application (www.pitcairn-crabbe.org) to include a brief letter of inquiry to the Foundationís Executive Director.
Under separate cover (or preferably attached to the on-line application as a PDF file), the organization must mail to the Foundation a copy of its latest Audit and IRS Tax-Exempt Determination Letter. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
If the project request meets the criteria and current funding priorities of the Foundation, a member of the Foundation's staff will contact the applicant to arrange a meeting and provide further guidance regarding submission of a formal proposal.
