We are not accepting any new grant applications at this time.
The Graham C. Lount Family Foundation continues to focus on implementing trust-based philanthropy practices (www.trustbasedphilanthropy.org). While respect and trust have been core values in our family foundation’s work, we are moving towards embodying trust by providing multi-year unrestricted grants, streamlining our reporting and embracing transparent and responsive communication. We believe that trust-based philanthropy allows for a more meaningful connection with our grantee partners and helps to alleviate the inherent power imbalances between funders and grantees.
Multi-year funding, increasing grant allotments and ongoing conversations with our current long-term grantees all have an impact on the family foundation’s granting processes for the future. We are not accepting any new grant applications from organizations that are not currently funded by the Graham C. Lount Family Foundation. Please be assured that we will continue to fund all of our current and renewable multi-year grantee partners.
