Guidelines for Trust-Initiated Programming

Retaining the flexibility to respond to various arising needs, determined either through published data or anecdotal evidence, is central to the Board of Trustees. In contrast with its typical role of responding to unsolicited applications for grant support, the Carver Trust occasionally conceives, develops and often administers special programs that address expressed interests from the Trustees. Based on responses from recipient organizations and the constituencies they represent, the Trustees believe that these Trust-initiated programs continue to yield tangible results that impact the lives of many Iowans, young and old, in very positive ways. Guidelines for these special initiatives may be found on this site or are available from the Trust office upon request.
