The primary purpose of the Granger Foundation is to enhance the quality of life within the Greater Lansing Area. Our primary mission is to support Christ-centered activities. We also support efforts that enhance the lives of youth in our community.
The trustees of the Granger Foundation prayerfully consider organizations and funding areas that are significant and have far-reaching value. Because of the increasing needs in our own community, we generally concentrate our giving to the Tri-County area (Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties).
The Granger Foundation assigns the highest priority to projects falling within the criteria described above. Projects outside these are generally not encouraged.
The Granger Foundation does NOT make grants for the following:
Church capital funds or improvements
Public schools capital funds or improvements, individual clubs (PTO, PTA, etc.)
Instructions for Presenting a Request
In order to be considered, the Request for Funding form must be completed in full and submitted in quadruplicate. Form letters and lengthy proposals may not receive the attention they warrant.
