The board meets quarterly in January, April, July and October. The Foundation does not provide an application form.


A formal proposal to the Campbell Foundation is initiated by submitting a letter of request limited to one page and including the following:

  • The full legal name of the organization.
  • A concise description of the organization and its purpose and program.
  • A brief description of the purpose for which the grant would be used.
  • The total amount of the project or campaign goal and amount raised to date toward that goal.
  • A specific amount of money requested.
  • A definite plan and timetable for successful completion of the project.
  • Two signatures: one of the principal officer of the governing board, and one of the chief administrative officer of the  institution.

The letter of request should have enclosed with it a copy of the Internal Revenue Service letter, which attests to the organization’s tax-exempt status and classification as “not a private Foundation.”
