The Greenstone Foundation was established in 1998 as a way for our organization to give back to the communities we serve. Our mission is to assist organizations in our community that offer help to those in need by supporting educational programs, health and nutrition programs, and affordable housing.

As a private, charitable foundation based out of Liberty Lake, WA, we are honored to be involved with organizations throughout the Inland Northwest who are dedicated to making a difference in supporting our local communities. If you are involved with a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and would like to submit a proposal for grant funds from Greenstone Foundation, please see the information and grant applications below.

Use this application if requesting less than $5,000.

Use this application if requesting $5,000 or more.

Minor grant applications are reviewed semi-annually:
Applications submitted January 1st-June 30th will be reviewed and paid in July or when requested thereafter.
Applications submitted July 1st–December 31st will be reviewed and paid in January or when requested.

Major grant applications are reviewed annually:
Applications submitted January 1st-October 31st will be reviewed and paid in January or when requested thereafter.

Tips to prepare for submitting your grant proposal:

  • Make sure your grant proposal aligns with our mission statement

  • Create a compelling cover letter, proposal narrative, budgets, and list of key staff

  • Provide a Federal tax W-9 Form and IRS 501(c)(3) determination letter

Grant applications can be approved for up to 5 annual payment disbursements with one application. Our Minor and Major Grant Applications are designed to gather all of the important information we need to make a determination regarding your request. We would love to be able to fund all grant requests, but due to the high number of applications and the funds available, this is not possible. (Note: we do not support the following types of need: public schools, publicity for fundraising events, and organizations that do not serve the community directly).
