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 minimum funding level is $1,000, with the average grant in 2012 and 2013 being between $2000 and $2500.
Our granting "season" for 2014 is late summer. Wewill meet in early August and sent grants through September. The deadline for applying is June 15, and we would rather you wait until May 1st to send applications. If your need is for a summer program (internship, camp), do feel free to contact us sooner.
Beginning in 2008, we have awarded one "Big Fish" grant of $25,000 to an organization that meets our criteria and on which the board votes as a group. The only rules for the Big Fish grant is that the project it funds 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 like this particular grant to be for something special and permanent.
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 strongly encourage applications 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, or drop us a short letter and include your email address so we can reply and get the communication started.
