General Guidelines
The John Steven Kellett Foundation presently operates on a single annual cycle for funding, managed through a letter of inquiry system. The grant cycle runs from April 1 to March 31 of the following calendar year.

Most grant awards are made for $1,000 (or less, as requested), up to a maximum amount of $5,000. Additional funds may be considered under exceptional circumstances. The Foundation makes no commitment to any organization for funding beyond the current grant.

The Foundation will not consider grants that fall beyond its mission. All applicants must have 501(c)(3) status.

Letters of inquiry are accepted continuously. Inquiries meeting the Foundation’s funding criteria during any given annual grant cycle will be invited to submit full applications.

Unsolicited full grant applications will not be considered.
