Singing for Change
Improving the quality of life for people and empowering individuals to make positive changes in their communities. Grants are awarded to programs that are concerned with the health, education and protection of children and their families. Projects that foster self-esteem and self-sufficiency and that teach nonviolence and creative problem solving are most likely to be considered.

Eligibility:Grants are made only to nonprofit organizations with tax-exempt status under section 501(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code, or who have a sponsoring agency with this status. SFC Charitable Foundation, Inc. does not normally consider grants to individuals or to fund research, basic-needs programs (for example, programs that exist to supply food or clothing) or single service programs, governmental agencies, artistic, political or fundraising organizations or events, programs that promote religious doctrine, or organizations outside the United States. It is hoped that nonprofit organizations who apply to SFC for support are operated and organized without discrimination in hiring staff or providing services on the basis of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin or disability.

Funding:Grants range in size from $500.00 to $10,000.00 and are made on an annual basis.
