If your grant request is approved or denied you will be notified in writing. Grant recipients will be notified of the effective date of the grant. The 2022 grant approval expires November 16, 2023. If the documentation is not received to process your payment(s) by this date, your grant approval will be withdrawn and voided. Should your request be withdrawn or voided, you are not disqualified from applying in the future.

Your request is for the funding of the purchase of a particular item(s). You are to make your best efforts to obtain an accurate estimate of the cost and provide such documentation with the application. Requesting excess funds limits the amounts that can be awarded to other organizations. The eventual payment will be based upon the actual cost of the item(s) as documented by an invoice. You will be paid only up to the amount of the grant. Should the actual cost exceed your grant request, you will be responsible for the difference. Should the actual cost be less, you will not be given the difference. The difference will be retained by the The King’s Daughters and Sons Foundation for future grants. WE DO NOT HONOR GRANTS FOR ITEMS PURCHASED PRIOR TO APPROVAL.
