Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies for activities that benefit communities across a broad range of areas, with an emphasis on geographic locations where family members of the Funding Source reside. Request summaries are due prior to the submission of full proposals. Primary support areas include arts, culture, and humanities; education; environment; health and medical; human services; and public/society benefit.

The Foundation trustees have historically approved grants in those areas where Kettering family members reside. At the same time, 90%+ of the grants approved in recent years have been trustee endorsed, some of which are in areas that may be located outside of family residence areas.  Family members live throughout the United States, but there are larger concentrations between New York and New Hampshire, in addition to Colorado.

It is strongly recommended that applicants contact the Foundation’s office to discuss their proposed program before starting the application process.
