Invitational Grant Guidelines

Our funding process from start to finish

  • Satterberg Foundation Board Members will initiate Invitational Grants.
  • Nonprofit organizations, which are consistent with the mission, vision and values of the Satterberg Foundation, and are not applying for funds for evangelical programs, may be considered for Invitational Grants. This determination will be made between the nominating Board Member and the nonprofit organization under consideration.
  • The nominating Board Member will act as liaison between the nominated nonprofit organization and the Satterberg Foundation office, guiding the application process and assisting in the determination of the grant request amount.
  • There is no restriction on the number of Invitational Grants awarded to an organization or its programs in one calendar year
  • Applicants may be invited to re-apply for grants at the sole discretion of the nominating Board Member.
  • Application packets will be available from the nominating Board Member, or at the Board Member’s request, from the office. 
  • All applications must be submitted on current forms.
  • Satterberg Foundation Board Members may request additional information from their applicant organization.
  • The nominating Board Member must notify the office directly prior to submission of the grant application. We encourage, but do not require, electronic submission of applications and supporting documents. If submitting by USPS, UPS, Fed Ex or other, please do not require a signature. The Satterberg Foundation office will email confirmation of receipt of the application to the organization and to the nominating Satterberg Foundation Board Member.
  • Grants are awarded by decision of the Board.
  • Grant reporting requirements will be included with the grant.
  • Only grant recipients who are timely in their reporting will be eligible to be featured on the the home page of the Satterberg Foundation's website.
