Funding Guidelines

We are proud to support the work of our nonprofit partners who are advancing important causes in communities around the world. Through these partnerships, EMC contributes funds, in-kind products and services, and employee volunteer time.


To be eligible for funding, organizations must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a nonprofit and tax-exempt organization according to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, a publicly funded academic institution, or a municipality
  • Must support an EMC site community
  • Overhead expenses must not exceed 25% of total operating budget


The following are not eligible for funding:

  • Organizations without 501(c)(3) status with the exception of publicly funded academic institutions and municipalities
  • Individuals; religious, veteran or fraternal organizations; political causes or candidates
  • Organizations that promote or practice discrimination
  • Direct mail solicitations
  • Courtesy advertising
  • Endowments
  • Tickets for contests
  • Reduction of debt


EMC considers proposals bi-monthly, and the review process takes approximately eight weeks. There is no set financial range for the grant awards. All proposals should be emailed to and must include the following information:

  • Application form (download and complete this form)
  • A listing of all current funding sources and amounts, and other revenue
  • Names of board of directors and affiliations

Incomplete proposals will not be considered. EMC will respond to you in writing. If your proposal is selected for funding, EMC will require the following additional attachments:

  • Copy of IRS 501(c)(3) determination letter
  • Audited financial statement for most recent fiscal year
  • Annual report, if available


All EMC grant recipients must submit a report outlining the expenditures of the funds within 12 months of receiving the award. New requests will not be considered until the evaluation for the last grant is submitted.
