The Ralph and Eileen Swett Foundation's mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals. By making grants to other charitable organizations (designated as IRS 501c3 non-profit organizations) the foundation seeks to fund programs that directly impact individual's lives. We believe that the greatest impacts involve a permanent change in the lives of those served, and our Board of Trustees takes great pride in approving grants that have quantifiable measures for such success. Because of this outcome-minded philosophy, our Foundation takes an active role in seeking out these programs by inviting organizations to apply, but also depends on organizations bringing themselves to the attention of the Foundation's Board of Trustees. Interested applicants may proceed to the Grant Inquiry page to submit the necessary preliminary information. Your information will be reviewed by a trustee and, if found to fulfill the mission of the Foundation in an exemplary way, you may be asked to submit supplementary materials for our due diligence prior to the Board's upcoming grant approval meeting. The Foundation recognizes that its members do not have full knowledge of the many creative ways organizations dedicate themselves to helping people and we expect to find many of our future grant recipients in this manner. We also expect this information to help develop areas of interest for future recurrent funding.
- Programs which assist orphaned children and promote their adoption (the Foundation does this through funding programs at 501c3 non-profits only. If you are looking for assistance with an individual adoption we suggest you apply for a cash grant from the Gift of Adoption Fund at www.giftofadoption.org
- Sponsoring intervention in the lives of troubled youths
Funding is by no means restricted to the fields mentioned above. The Foundation remains open to other areas of interest so potential applicants with service in other areas should not be discouraged from applying or from bringing themselves to the attention of the Board. The Ralph and Eileen Swett Foundation, has not limited itself to specific areas of need and expects to evolve its policies and interests with time. Therefore, we invite you to use this website to submit your grant inquiry or make your organization known and to return to this website periodically for updated information.
