The Charles H. Stout Foundation encourages applications for grants from organizations which were actively supported by Mr. Stout during his lifetime or that would, in the opinion of the Trustees of the Foundation, promote values treasured by its founder.
Grants of the Foundation are made to organizations operated exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary, educational or religious purposes or for the prevention of child abuse and cruelty to animals.
Preference is given to organizations in geographic localities where one or more members of the Foundation either reside or visit frequently.
In order to reduce the amount of email/mail The Charles H. Stout Foundation receives that is not specifically relevant to the management of grants, users of this web site agree to keep the Foundation off its generic marketing, distribution, and mailing lists, including, but not limited to, annual reports, newsletters, and donor appeals.
2017 Grant Requests are now being accepted. Click on "APPLY" to navigate to the Foundations on-line Grant Application.
