What We Fund
Grants are awarded annually to a broad range of charitable organizations serving Clallam County. Grants are predominately made for one year, with no implied renewal funding. However, a two-year grant will be considered if a case is made for why funding is required for a longer period. An example of this exception is a planning or capacity-building process occurring over a two-year period of time.
The Benjamin N. Phillips Memorial Fund is interested in supporting organizations that have:
- A mission statement that clearly defines the organization’s purpose and reflects its understanding of the communities they serve
- A clear articulation of why it believed what it is doing is important and that it will be effective and produce desired results
- Clearly defined priorities, goals and measurable outcomes
- Experienced and highly qualified staff and volunteer leadership
- A skilled governing board whose knowledge includes management, fundraising and the community served
- A funding plan appropriate to agency size and developmental state-guiding development efforts
- Sound financial management practices
- Support in the community and constituent involvement
- Proven ability to mobilize financial and in-kind support, including volunteers
Current grantees are ineligible to apply for new project funding following two years of Phillips support. Previously funded organizations may re-apply following one year without Phillips funding. Progress reports are required every 12 months and a final report is required at the conclusion of the grant period.
