What the EBMF Does

The Ed & Betty Manoyan Foundation (Foundation) funds causes that will advance its Mission and Goals.  It generally makes two types of funding available:  donations and grants.

Donations are made for both specific and non-specific purposes which help not-for-profit organizations continue to operate and provide their services to their constituencies.  Normally, these are smaller contributions than grants, and may or may not be made on an annual basis.  Organizations can submit requests for donations, and the Foundation occasionally makes donations to organizations on an unsolicited basis.

Grants typically are made for specific programs and purposes rather than to support an organization’s normal operations.  Funding for grants tends to be larger and may or may not be given on an annual basis.  To receive a grant, an organization should submit a request using the format provided in this website and provide more detailed information than is requested for a donation.
