The Harvest Foundation is not currently accepting letters of inquiry for 2022.
We are evaluating our grant application process.
We do not expect to substantially change our areas of funding priorities, but that will be considered.
Please watch this web site for updates.
March 30 2022: We have asked a group of organizations to submit applications for Arts Education grants for the 2022-2023 school year. We will not accept letters of inquiry from other arts education organizations in 2022. Plans for 2023 grantmaking are not determined yet.
We will soon decide on our plan for social service grants in 2022, and that will be announced on this web page.
We appreciate your patience as we work to update our grantmaking process.
The Harvest Foundation was created in 2000 as a private, family foundation to provide funding primarily in the areas of Social Services and Education. The Harvest Foundation awards grants to 501(c)(3) organizations located in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana.
The Foundation awards annual grants in the amount of $10,000 each. Multi-year grants are not considered. Grants will not be made to the same organization for more than three consecutive years.
Grants must not constitute more than 20% of the supported program’s annual budget. The Foundation will consider applications for general operating grants only for organizations whose mission and operations are closely aligned with the Harvest Foundation’s funding areas.
The Foundation seeks to support the work of community social service agencies. It is specifically interested in organizations that provide services in two areas:
- Promoting economic self-sufficiency through education and training of youth or families with children.
- Serving the elderly by providing services to help senior citizens live independently.
Arts Education Grants
The Foundationís goal for grants in arts education is to assist arts organizations in providing hands-on arts classes in schools.
The desired outcome of these classes must include an alignment with state arts education requirements.
Applications from organizations serving low-income or underserved children will be favored.
Funding of both capital items and operating program costs will be considered.
Starting in 2022, the Harvest Foundation will no longer fund teacher training in technology and curriculum development.
The Harvest Foundation is not currently accepting letters of inquiry or unsolicited grant applications.
