The Carolyn W. and Charles T. Beaird Family Foundation regrets to announce the death of our Executive Director, Jim Montgomery, on Saturday, January 12, 2013, after a battle with lung cancer. The support and condolences of the foundation and NW Louisiana communities are much appreciated. For more information, including memorial donation requests, please see the obituary here.
If you are considering making a grant application before the September 1 deadline, please proceed with the process. Questions regarding this grant cycle should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be answered by a member of our Grant Selection Committee. We appreciate your patience and understanding in our time of loss.
Our next deadline for grant proposals is September 1, 2013, though you may begin entering proposals in the system as of July 1, 2013. The next deadline after that is March 1, 2014, for which you may enter proposals starting on January 1, 2014. We will consider only one proposal per organization per calendar year. If reapplying, organizations must complete their final reports before submitting a new application.
The majority of our grants are given to qualified nonprofit organizations in the Shreveport-Bossier City area of North Louisiana. If your organization is not based in this area, if your organization is a first-time applicant, or if you have any other questions as to whether your organization might or might not qualify for a grant, please e-mail us at email@example.com or call us at (318) 221-2823 prior to filing an application.
All grant applications must be filed on-line using our system. Click on "HERE" below. If you are a first-time applicant, click on "CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT" and complete the contact information page. If you have applied in our system before, simply log on with your user name and password.
If your organization has received a grant, you will also file your final report on this system.
