About the Deupree Family Foundation
The Deupree Family Foundation is a small foundation with no geographical home base. Our board members live in many areas in the United States.
All of our grant applicants must be fully registered Federal 501(c)3 non-profit organizations. Our average grant in 2012 and 2013 was between $2000 and $2500.
We have one "Big Fish" grant of $25,000 to an organization that meets our criteria and on which the board votes as a group. The rules are: the project funded must be educational (which is a very broad category) and it must cost around $25,000. In other words, most of the total funds needed to complete the specific project will be supplied by our grant.
Although we appreciate that organizations have operating overhead and routine expenses, we would prefer not to fund salaries and general operations.
In addition to the "Big Fish," we accept applications from many kinds of groups and organizations, but we do give most of our grants to organizations we know personally in our own communities. If we don't know you, your chances of getting funding are much less.
We require applications to be sent in an electronic form. This makes it easier for us to all share the applications. This could be an attachment or simply the body of an email. Please make initial contact through our email form.
