Policies & Priorities

Organizations submitting grant requests must be qualified charitable organizations as defined under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. The Halle Foundation does not utilize fiscal agents to handle funds for organizations that do not have an IRS determination letter.

The Foundation supports new and innovative projects which further its mission of promoting knowledge and friendship between the people of Germany and those of the United States. The Foundation relies on the requesting organization to fully organize, staff, and execute any projects for which grants are requested. 

The Halle Foundation does NOT make grants:

  • For operating support of any kind (program, project, administrative)
  • To churches and religious organizations for projects that primarily benefit their
         own members
  • To sports booster clubs
  • For tickets to charitable events or dinners
  • For legislative lobbying or other political purposes
  • To retire accumulated debt
