"To improve the quality of life in Idaho." I think Harry, Ann, and Velma would agree, because that's what the HMF has been doing since 1953. It is a statement that should be guiding all of us either applying for or funding grants. Do you have a project that fits? Then I encourage you to apply for funding. We will take your grant through our standard process and give it a fair assessment. Check out our FAQ section, where you can find tips on making your grant request successful.
Hopefully we will fund your request in full or in part. Or we might offer a challenge grant. But please understand that, by necessity, we will have to turn down more grants than we can fund. That doesn't mean your project is unworthy. Regardless of the outcome, I encourage you to keep doing your much-needed work in our community.
