Grant Opportunities


If you are interested in applying for a grant from the Ausherman Family Foundation, please review all information in this area of the website to determine if your organization is eligible and that you understand the two-part application process. Grant seekers first submit a Letter of Inquiry. If the grant request fits the Foundation's criteria and the Trustees are interested, the Grant Seeker will be asked to submit a formal grant application.

Only Letters of Inquiry and formal Grant Applications submitted online will be considered for funding.
