Rockland Trust and its affiliated foundations currently accept two types of requests for funding: Event Sponsorship Requests or Program Grants. These guidelines below summarize the major factors considered in charitable contribution decision-making.
Foundations will typically only award funding for grants and sponsorships to organizations recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3)Public Charity non-profit organization. For more information, please see our foundation giving guidelines.
Request a Program Grant
Grants are funds provided to non-profits recognized as a 501(c)(3) Public Charities by the IRS in support of specific projects or programs, including capital requests, or operating support. Multi-year requests are accepted. Grants are NOT to request funding for a date-specific event. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and are reviewed quarterly by our Boards of Directors. To receive funding in the current calendar year, a completed application must be submitted by October 15, 2019. The average grant amount is $1,000 - $5,000.
Request a Sponsorship
Sponsorships are marketing partnerships with an organization that align with our charitable mission and yield visibility for an event or events to be held on a specific date. Other criteria that are considered when evaluating sponsorship proposals are the positive impact on the community and quantifiable media value.
