The Gorman Foundation
The Gorman Foundation awards grants to organizations that are within their geographic focus and areas of interest. Organizations must be tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and cannot be classified as private foundations under Section 509(a) of the Code. In select cases, they may consider support for special projects sponsored by governmental entities.
They do not award grants to individuals; debt reduction drives; or for lobbying activities as defined by the Internal Revenue Service.
Policy on Non-discrimination
The Gorman Foundation will not award grant support to organizations that, in their constitution, bylaws or practices, discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or religious belief. Grantees may target services to a particular population when the targeted groups require specialized programs to meet specific needs not shared by the general population.
