Beazley Foundation, Inc. Grant Policy

In keeping with policy established by Mr. Beazley, the Beazley Foundation awards grants only to organizations tax exempt pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and engaged in educational, charitable and religious (parochial schools) activities.

Although no predetermined allocations govern the mission, Foundation grants are generally inclined to educational initiatives.  Geographically, although awards historically favored projects within the City of Portsmouth, the Foundation today funds non-profits throughout South Hampton Roads, and, on occasion, beyond, always at the sole discretion of the Board.

The Foundation does not support:

1. Conferences, symposia, publications, media, public information or like projects.

2. International programs, institutions or similar organizations.

3. National programs, institutions or like undertakings.

4.Environmental projects and programs, with infrequent exceptions for   compelling, highly credible programs, focused, sustained and dedicated         solely to educational purposes, as determined by the Board.

5. The arts, with infrequent exceptions for compelling, highly credible programs, focused, sustained and dedicated solely to educational purposes, as determined by the Board.

6.  The general operational, capital or other needs of individual churches or other specific religious institutions.

The Board reserves the right to depart from Foundation grantmaking policy in the exercise of its sole discretion, consistent with applicable law.

No grant proposal will be considered, absent prior consultation with the President of the Foundation or his or her designee.
