Lyndhurst grants are distributed primarily at the initiative of the foundation through the cultivation of strategic partnerships with nonprofit organizations which have the demonstrated capacity and leadership to engender positive and measurable outcomes within the foundation’s declared areas of interest. Unsolicited proposals will not be eligible for consideration.
Potential partners will be invited to submit grant proposals that: 1) describe the program of work to be undertaken; 2) indicate the desired level of funding; 3) list the results that should be achieved; and 4) define the means by which the project outcomes will be evaluated.
The narrative section of the proposal should be limited to three pages and include the following attachments:
A description of the sponsoring organization
A list of the board of directors and staff
A copy of the organization’s annual budget (both income and expenditures)
An estimated project budget with line items
A copy of the organization’s tax-exempt ruling from the Internal Revenue Service
