Apply for Grant:Guidelines
In order to apply for a grant from the Ayrshire Foundation, an organization must fill out the brief application form on this website.

Preference is given to organizations located in the following areas: Pasadena, San Francisco, and Sonoma, California; Petoskey/Harbor Springs, Michigan. Organizations with which Ayrshire board members have some personal involvement are also given priority. However, we welcome inquiries though our website.

If an applicant looks suitable, the foundation will respond with a request for a proposal (RFP). Please do not send more than the application until requested to do otherwise.

The foundation board meets semi-annually, with a fiscal year that begins in June. Only in rare instances are grants considered between semi-annual funding cycles. The RFP issued by Ayrshire will describe in detail the information that is required. Completed grant proposals are appreciated by March 15 for our May/June meeting, and September 15 for our October meeting.
