Thank you for your
interest in The Sandy River Charitable Foundation. We are a family
foundation run by volunteer board efforts and a small paid staff. The
board has chosen to actively search for organizations and projects of
interest and present specific organizations with invitations to submit
an application, rather than offer an open request for proposals.
As a result, The Sandy River Charitable Foundation does not accept
unsolicited proposals. Furthermore,
the Foundation has committed a
substantial portion of its grant budget through 2010.
We recognize that there are many worthy and essential efforts currently
operating and being developed, and that the process of searching for
funding is time consuming and often frustrating. We also realize that
we do not have the resources to fund the vast majority of these
efforts, and we do not enjoy writing letters turning away individuals
and organizations any more than those who receive them. If you still
choose to contact us, please do so without expectation.
