The Ludwick Family Foundation awards grants for new vehicles or equipment, equipment replacement and modernization, improvements to facilities, and educational materials. They are interested in tangible items that tend to remain with an organization. Ludwick Family Foundation varies from many other foundations in that it tends to provide grants for tangible types of items that assist a program or project, rather than funding the program itself. The geographic areas of interest are throughout the United States (highest percentage in California) or U.S. based international organizations.
Grants range from $5,000 to $50,000 and are made for a single year.
The Foundation does not grant requests for:
* General Operating Expenses
* Travel Expenses
* Endowment Funds
* Fundraising Events or Capital Campaigns
* Feasibility Studies or Consulting Fees
* Political Lobbying, Voter Registration or Political Campaigns
* Insurance or Maintenance Contracts
* Printing Expenses
No requests accepted from:
* Public/Private Schools (K-12)
* Child Day Care/Development Centers
* Fiscal Agents
* Faith-based Organizations
