Answers:

 1. How much should we ask for from the Hazel Miller Foundation?


2014 and beyond
         $1,000 - $25,000*


*Grants over $25,000 will be considered under special circumstances or for capital projects.
 2. Can we ask for two separate grants for two separate projects? 


It is probably best to select your strongest area of need, with the best fit, but there is no prohibition to requesting for multiple projects.


 3. Does a grant to an affiliate restrict the possibility for a grant to our program?

We are sensitive to the danger of having the same recipients being funded over and over, but there is no automatic restriction on repeat grants or multiple grants to affiliates.
