Windgate Charitable Foundation:
Wow

In our November/December 2006 issue, we include an article on the Windgate Charitable Foundation, its background, and the extensive funding (millions of dollars) it has been providing to projects and organizations that support craft artists, schools, and research. Here is a complete list of projects funded in 2005, according to foundation records.

As noted in the article, the foundation tends to make one-time grants or to support two- to three-year projects. Guidelines state that it “prefers program support over capital funds,” gives priority to matching-fund requests, and does not give grants for undesignated annual-fund gifts, debt retirement, or completed projects or to private religious schools or individuals. It prefers to fund projects of its own initiative rather than unsolicited grants. Contact information: Windgate Charitable Foundation, PO Box 826, Siloam Springs, AR 72761-0826. (479) 524-9829.
