    The Bothin Foundation


    The Bothin Foundation provides capital grants to nonprofit organizations. The Foundation focuses primarily on (1) disadvantaged children and youth (ages 0 to 24); (2) low-income families, and (3) people with disabilities. Funded projects support these population groups through the arts, education, environment, and social services. The Foundation also supports K-12 schools exclusively serving children with learning differences.

    In 2019, the Bothin Foundation supported projects in the following categories:

    • Building Renovation Grants - The foundation will fund any contracted labor directly associated with the project. This could include labor for removal or installation of materials or the hiring of expertise needed to complete the project, such as engineers or contractors.
    • Technology Grants - The foundation prioritizes requests to purchase equipment that will be used by program participants. Technology grants to support an organization's infrastructure (e.g., servers, computers for staff use, phone systems) are generally one-time grants
    • Vehicle Projects - The foundation prioritizes vehicle purchases that transport participants. Insurance, gas, advertising on van (wrap-around printing), and warranties are not covered by grants.

    Successful grant applications will be for capital projects that can be completed within 12 months of receiving a grant.
