Floyd & Delores Jones Endowed Fund Grants

The Floyd & Delores Jones Endowed Fund Grant cycle is CLOSED. 

Stanwood-Camano Area Foundation’s Vision & Mission

Our vision is to help build a vibrant, caring, "hometown" community where people can be proud to live, work and play.

We will achieve our vision through facilitating projects and philanthropy that enhance our community, providing non-profit leadership, and supporting education.

Who Is Eligible to Apply? 

Nonprofit Organizations – Any active 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a project in need of funding that directly benefits the community is eligible to apply. (Organization must be listed as active on the IRS exempt organization verification site, https://apps.irs.gov/app/eos.) 

501(c)(6), 501(c)(8), and 501(c)(19) organizations are also eligible to apply, but must fill out a separate application and follow expenditure responsibility participation requirements (download participation requirements here)

Public Agencies – Public agencies such as schools, libraries, parks, fire and police departments with an unfunded project that directly benefits the Stanwood-Camano community may apply. 

Grants are available for both projects and operating funds. Projects must meet the following criteria to be considered: 

  • They must directly benefit the Stanwood-Camano community (defined by the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District).
  • They must be realistic and attainable.
  • They must have experienced project staff and/or volunteers in place who can successfully implement the project, and a track record of strong operational management.
  • They must be centered around charitable activities that are consistent with SCAF's vision and mission. Funds may not be used for lobbying, influencing elections, re-granting to individuals, or for any purpose other than charitable.

Operating fund grants are only available to nonprofit organizations physically located within the boundaries of the Stanwood-Camano School District. Operating fund grants are most likely to be awarded to start-up ventures rather than established nonprofit organizations. 

Applications will be accepted for grant requests up to $10,000.

All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, which will, at its sole discretion, select projects to fund. Decisions will be announced by July 15.

Post-Grant Reporting

Reporting Requirement:

SCAF requires a final report within one month of the project's completion date, or one year from receipt of the funds, whichever comes first. The final report consists of:

  • A one-page narrative report on activities and impacts.
  • If applicable, photos that demonstrate the impact of this project.

Failure to submit the final report will result in the organization's ineligibility for SCAF grants in the future.
