GRANT GUIDELINES
OF THE
BEHMANN BROTHERS FOUNDATION
 
Revised 6/19/17

The Behmann Brothers Foundation was established in October of 1979.  Our primary areas of interest are:  agricultural research and education, schools, youth groups, healthcare and service organizations.

In order to use its financial resources prudently and because the Behmann Brothers Foundation receives more requests than it can fund, the Foundation has established the following Grant Guidelines for its grant-making activities:

GRANTS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR THE 2018 YEAR BETWEEN FEBRUARY 1, 2018 and MAY 1, 2018.

Grant applications should be mailed via regular mail (Unites States Postal Service) or electronic mail.  We will no longer accept applications via Fed Ex or UPS.

Grant Guidelines Included in Directives to Applicants:

  1. Grants will not be made to an organization whose headquarters are located outside of the State of Texas. Grants will primarily be made to organizations in the counties of Nueces, Aransas, Bee, Jim Wells, Kleberg, Live Oak, Refugio, and San Patricio.
     

  2. Our Foundation has developed the grant application form found on our website.  This form, with no modifications, is the only form which will be accepted for consideration.
     

  3. Applications will be considered only from non-profit organizations that are currently recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as tax-exempt non-profit organizations that are public charities (in accordance with the provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1969).  To be considered, the charity must be currently listed as a public charity that is “not a private foundation” by the IRS on its most current Cumulative List of 501(c)(3) organizations.  Absent such a listing, the charity must provide as part of its application package a determination letter issued by the IRS within 90 days prior to the application date verifying such status.
     

  4. As part of the application package, a copy of the IRS Form 990 as signed and filed with the IRS for the most current tax year of the applicant must be submitted to the Foundation.
     

  5. All requirements of the Foundation’s application process must be satisfied before a grant application will be accepted for presentation to Foundation’s Board of Directors for an official vote.  To be considered in any year, the application must be received between February 1ST and May 1ST of that year.
     

  6. The fact that the Foundation approves a portion of a grant request creates no obligation on the part of the Foundation to give further grants for the project which has been partially funded.
     

  7. The Foundation will not make grants to any individual or governmental entity.
     

  8. The Foundation will not make grants for political or lobbying activities.
     

  9. All funds distributed by the Foundation must be used for the project designated in the application.
     

  10. All proper grant applications will be considered. All approved grants will be funded by June 30th.
