Grant Guidelines
The Foundation will fund as many qualified projects as its annual budget allows. Please review the following guidelines in detail if you would like to request funding from the Foundation. The Board of Trustees will meet periodically to review potential grants.
Eligible Institutions

While the scope of the Foundation's efforts are largely centered on the environment and alternative health care modalities, the Foundation has the flexibility to contribute to such other causes as the Trustees believe are consistent with the Sohns' vision, including alleviation of poverty, education and the arts.
