The Chisholm Foundation was founded in 1960 by Alexander F Chisholm, a businessman, churchman, and philanthropist of Laurel, Mississippi. The activities of the Foundation were carried forward for many years by his daughters, Jean Chisholm Lindsey, Cynthia Chisholm Saint-Amand, and Margaret Ann Chisholm.
The mission of the Chisholm Foundation is to support education, the arts, and religious endeavors. The founder's descendents continue to nurture his vision today.
The Chisholm Foundation does not have an application form, nor does it have a rigid proposal format. It is recommended that a letter of inquiry include the following information:
a brief summary of the proposed project
the project budget and schedule
the amount requested from the Chisholm Foundation
current funders (if any) of the project and pending proposals.
copy of IRS tax exemption letter
brochures or other descriptive material about the submitting organization
The Chisholm Foundation funds only a small number of the many worthwhile proposals received. The Foundation welcomes an opportunity to consider special projects, especially demonstration or "seed" projects which, if successful, can be continued with support from an organization's operating budget or other funding sources. Matching gifts or challenge grants are encouraged as a means of leveraging the funding effort.
Proposals submitted to the Foundation are reviewed by the trustees twice a year. Because of the volume of proposals, there can be delay in review. Applicants are requested to submit proposals at least three months in advance of need. http://www.chisholmfoundation.org/Home.htm
