The Well Foundation Grants do not support grant requests for individuals, budget deficits / debt reduction, expenses incurred prior to a grant proposal period, church buildings and grounds (exceptions may be given for daycare ministries), requests to support proselytizing (*), political party activities, scholarships for post-secondary education, and policy/lobbying.
(*) Organizations with religious affiliation are not excluded from making grant applications but the project or program must be nonsectarian.
By transferring the funds, donors’ intent will remain intact to sustain local health and wellness for years to come. One fund in particular, previously allocated through an unrestricted application process, will continue with a group of Well Foundation volunteers in the capacity of a grant committee process as had been similarly managed. Requests for funding will be accepted annually through the newly named Well Foundation field of interest fund, which supports health and wellness for the people of Goshen and surrounding communities.
