How to Work With Us

In Central Texas and South Australia: Please review our philosophy of giving and grant guidelines. If your organization clearly fits, you may submit a proposal (no more than 8 pages, including financials) on your project,  via email to info@tingarisilverton.org.  We do not have application forms or deadlines. Submissions are accepted year-round and are reviewed on an ongoing basis, with grant decisions generally made in late spring and late fall of each year.

U.S. and International: At this time, grants outside the Central Texas region or South Australia are considered only at the invitation of the Foundation.

Proposals should include: description of your organization and the populations it serves; details of the project for which you seek support, including specific goals and measurable objectives; a detailed project budget; information about your organization’s sources of financial support; and other related materials including IRS determination letters if you are a U.S. based organization, or an “equivalency determination” affidavit if you are a non U.S. based organization. Should additional information be required during our review process we will notify you accordingly.

We do not have application forms or deadlines governing the submission or review of proposals. Proposals are accepted year round and are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Our board of directors meets periodically throughout the year to review appropriate proposals. If your proposal is approved for funding, you will be notified after the board meeting at which the proposal was considered.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to fund all qualified projects, and from time to time we are forced to decline otherwise worthy proposals, whether or not they meet our guidelines.
