Grant Application

A written grant request is required and must include:
  • Name of organization, executive in charge, address, telephone number and email address.
  • A copy of Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) designation letter (for private non-public organizations), a list of Board members and an executive summary of your specific request.
  • If appropriate, a detailed project/program budget, schedule of implementation, and methods of evaluating and reporting the results. Include a listing and amount of all other sources of funding and support for the project for which grant is requested.
  • An explanation of how this project relates to Vision 2015 or other Northern Kentucky regional strategic plans.
Familiarize yourself with the guidelines of The R.C. Durr Foundation. If you still have questions, query first with a 1-page pre-application summary proposal in writing sent to Jean H. Mize at or mail to The R.C. Durr Foundation, Inc., 541 Buttermilk Pike, Suite 544, Covington, Kentucky 41017. This will eliminate your spending time on a formal grant request that may not be funded. 
No telephone calls please.
Requests are accepted year round. Response is normally within 90 days. The Foundation’s normal procedure is to review proposals as they are received as to fit with our mission and current funding goals. Those proposals deemed in agreement with our goals will be placed on the next Board of Director’s Meeting Agenda for further discussion. Those not in agreement will receive a written Letter of Decline as will those proposals declined by the Board. Commitment Letters will be sent to those whose proposals are funded by the Board.
Grants are restricted to private non-profit organizations for purposes defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and to public tax exempt organizations.
