Grant Request Process

Over the years, the Snee-Reinhardt Charitable Foundation Application Process has been refined. We strongly suggest that you read the entire For Grant Seekers section thoroughly as new requirements and limitations have been added and other procedures have been changed. 

PLEASE NOTE:  A FINAL REPORT detailing the outcome and grant expenditures, including receipts, photographs, and other necessary documentation, must be submitted at the conclusion of the grant.   If your organization has received funding in the past but has not submitted a final report, the current application will not move forward until the previous grant has been closed out.

The Snee-Reinhardt Charitable Foundation Funding Cycles are the:

  • Second Tuesday in May.
  • Second Tuesday in September.  

The deadline for Application Submission:

  • April 1st for the May meeting no later than 4:00 pm  If the 1st falls on a weekend, please see below.
  • August 1st for the September meeting no later than 4:00 p.m.   If the 1st falls on a weekend, please see below.

 

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

IF THE 1ST FALLS ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY, ALL PROPOSALS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY THE PRECEDING FRIDAY.  If a proposal is not received within the above specified time frame, it will be transferred to the next funding cycle.  No exceptions.

DO NOT send a proposal with a “Signature Required” for receipt through the US Postal Service, UPS, FedEx or any other courier service.  If no one is available to sign, this will delay receipt of the proposal for up to a week.  If you are concerned with the office receiving your proposal in a timely manner, pleas e-mail a copy to our office and make note if a hardcopy is in the mail.

Precedence is given to organizations situated within or whose activities are concentrated in first southwestern Pennsylvania, specifically Pittsburgh, then to organizations in Northern West Virginia, northern Maryland, the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and, lastly, the United States.  Please note that the Foundation receives a large amount of requests for the Southwestern Pennsylvania area, leaving a very limited funding for programs outside of our primary geographic focus.

Please continue onto the Category Definitions to see which Category your organizational needs fall under.
