Our eligibility criteria is somewhat fluid, as we assess applications on a case-by-case basis. Most of our grants go to families whose combined household income is less that $60,000 per year. We also consider factors such as number of children in a family, cost of the desired activity, and other unique expenses a family may be burdened with. 

Grants are tailored to the amount requested in each successful application. They are intended to cover the cost of an activity for up to one year. Most grants are between $500 and $2000.
