For Grantseekers


Thank you for considering the John E. Kostic Memorial Foundation as a partner in your work.  We believe it is important to walk alongside prospective grantees to accomplish goals of mutual interest and we are very interested in reviewing new and innovative ideas aimed at helping improve the quality of life for children and teens. We intentionally place vulnerable children and their families at the center of everything we do and we want the organizations and policies we support to surround them with integrated programs that address the comprehensive needs of children, their families and communities.

The John E. Kostic Memorial Foundation does not have any submission deadlines. All grant applications are rolling.

To be eligible for support, your organization or institution, as well as the purpose of the proposed project, must qualify under regulations of the United States Internal Revenue Service. As a result, we are not able to provide funding directly to individuals.

As you might expect, we receive more requests each year than we are able to fund. As a result, we are not able to fund ideas that do not fit within our current programming framework and guidelines.
