The Lawrence Foundation focuses on grants to support education, health, human services, and other causes, with the opportunity to support other diverse areas on an occasional basis. The foundation is unusual in that it makes both program and operating fund grants.
U.S.-based IRS 501(c)(3) qualified nonprofits or public schools and libraries are encouraged to apply. Submit a grant application using the Common Grant Application. The Lawrence Foundation has issued a general waiver for all grant seekers applying to their foundation, which means they will not be charged to apply to The Lawrence Foundation using this Web-based application.
Preparing grant applications can be a bit challenging. Botvin LifeSkills Training offers several grant application tools to help you in applying for local, state, and federal funding.
