IMPACT GRANTS

Scroll down for more information

Please review our grant guidelines to learn about The REAM Foundation′s grantmaking priorities and process, which apply to both our Sustaining grants and our Impact grants.

One of The REAM Foundation’s newer strategies is to invest much more deeply in a small number of exceptional organizations with larger, one-time “Impact grants” of around $100,000. These grants allow organizations to accomplish something that they otherwise would not be able to do, in response to a pressing need or special opportunity. Impact grants are specifically intended to come at a time to invest in building an organization or program. For example, they may support a grantee’s strategic plan with start-up costs, seed funding, or leveraging additional funding. Impact grants often support a grantee’s effort to change their model, scale, infrastructure and/or long-term programming.

We invite a small number of organizations to apply each year, and these organizations are exclusively current or previous grantees and/or invited by our Board of Directors.

Organizations can apply for both a Sustaining grant and an Impact grant at the same time for the Foundation’s consideration, but organizations cannot be awarded both grants within the same calendar year.
