Organizational Funding Statement 

The Horner Foundation has supported local nonprofit organizations through 2-year grants. Over the next 10 years, we look forward to continuing to provide multiyear support to nonprofits and community-based networks and collaborations.   

 

The Horner Foundation strives to be nimble, responsive and meet organizations where they are at. This often means that we provide stable, multi-year funding and ongoing support to nonprofits who may be launching a pilot project or going through a transition. However, we also believe in the value of self-sufficiency and diverse funding models. The Horner Foundation typically funds organizations for 1-2 funding cycles (2-4 years). In rare cases, we may work with an organizations for 3 funding cycles (6 years).
