Grant Decision Process
- Trustees make their grant decisions based on materials prepared for them by Foundation staff. Direct contact by applicants with Trustees is not necessary.
- Each applicant will be notified in writing shortly after a decision on its proposal has been made.
- If a grant award is authorized, the grantee is asked to sign a written Grant Agreement that describes the purpose and conditions of the grant.
- Unfortunately, due to limited funds, many meritorious requests cannot be funded. Please understand that the Foundation’s decision not to make a grant does not necessarily reflect any disapproval of the merits of the proposal or of the applicant organization.
- All applicants are requested to wait at least one year from the date of any previous application or grant award payment before submitting a new proposal to the Foundation.
- The Tull Foundation has a tradition of quiet giving, preferring no publicity or news releases. Grant recipients are requested to obtain permission before deviating from this practice. The inclusion of the Foundation’s name in a listing of annual supporters is, however, appreciated.
