The RosaMary Foundation operates under a trust agreement and, under the terms of the trust, is limited to the purpose of maintaining or aiding and assisting, through the medium of gifts, those organizations, whose principal interest is the support of educational, charitable, community improvement and literary purposes. Grants are made only to non-profit, tax exempt organizations and institutions. Petitioning organizations must be exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. No grants are made to individuals or for strictly religious purposes. The Foundation does not purchase tickets nor does it participate in fund raising events such as galas, etc.
Primary consideration will be given to those organizations whose operations are conducted in the Greater New Orleans area.
Proposals are accepted throughout the year. Decisions regarding grants will be made only at regularly scheduled meetings of the trustees which are usually held twice a year in the spring and fall. Interviews will be conducted only at the invitation of the Foundation.
The Foundation will not consider another application from your organization in the same calendar year as a previous declination. This applies to declinations at either application stage.
The Foundation uses a two stage application process.
