Thomas J. Long Foundation

The Thomas J. Long Foundation has a proud tradition of supporting charitable organizations in the East Bay Area and Hawaiian Islands since 1972.

The Foundation operates on a responsive grant making basis and awards grants in five selected fields of interest. One of the selected fields is 'education', which is a match for our SITES program.

Grant proposals are considered semi-annually in the spring and fall using a competitive application process. The application form is only available from the Foundation office. Non-profit organizations that meet all of the qualifications described in the Grant Guidelines are invited to submit a request for a grant application. Requests for an application are accepted between May 15 – July 15 for consideration during the Fall grant cycle.

Grants are made primarily in Northern California and Hawaii. Preference is given to organizations domiciled or providing service in the following East Bay counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Napa, Solano, and Sonoma.

It appears that this funding source is only available for our BDPA Bay Area chapter ... especially if they operate in one of the five East Bay counties listed above.
