2020 GRANT CYCLE
The Foundation will be awarding grants between $5,000 and $25,000 within one cycle in 2020. The application period is May 1 – June 20, 2020.
The AEG Community Foundation welcomes grant requests from organizations that meet the Foundation’s eligibility criteria listed in this document.
Grants will be made only to nonprofit organizations that make their programs available to all regardless of race, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious belief, or nationality.
Past applicants must wait one (1) grant cycle before applying again. In other words, they must skip one grant cycle in between their request for financial support.
Organizations that were awarded a Foundation grant in past cycles must wait two (2) grant cycles before applying again. For example, nonprofit organizations that applied for an AEG Community Foundation grant in 2018 are eligible to apply during the 2020 grant cycle.
Please note that the AEG Community Foundation serves nonprofit organizations in the United States and Puerto Rico. Priority is given to eligible nonprofit organizations that are in places where AEG does business. Visit www.aegworldwide.com to review a list AEG Divisions.
