Hutton Parker Foundation will facilitate two grant cycles in 2019 and application deadlines are based on an organization’s classification. Organizations are limited to ONE General Operating Support application per year. Grants will be awarded as single-year grants and, if awarded, organizations are required to take a year off from funding and are eligible to re-apply for grant support after the off year has elapsed.

See below for application deadlines as they relate to an organization’s classification. Classification is based on an organization’s mission statement, not specific programs or services. Please contact Pam Lewis, COO at plewis@huttonfoundation.org if you have any questions regarding your organization’s eligibility as failure to apply within the correct grant cycle will result in declination.

We ask that nonprofits refrain from contacting individual members of our Board of Directors and Grant Selection Committee.
