Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do I need to mail hard copies of my application materials to the Tribe?
No, it is not necessary for organizations to mail hard copies of their application. However, if you have materials you would like to submit that may not be sent to the Tribe through the electronic application form, you may mail them to:
Attn: Tribal Donations
Post Office Box 969
Snoqualmie, WA 98065
If my organization is not a 501c3, can we still apply?
No, any applications received from organizations that are not 501c3 non-profits will not be considered by the Tribe. To be eligible for funds, nonprofits must be registered as 501c3 organizations operating in Washington State.
Who reviews the applications and decides who should receive donations?
The applications will be reviewed through a thorough review process, and the Tribal Council is the ultimate determiner of which organizations receive donation funds from the Tribe.
Who should I contact if I have questions when putting together my application?
Please contact the Tribe through the Contact form on this website. Staff will attempt to respond to all inquiries, but please note that we receive many communication requests and we may not have the capacity to immediately respond to all inquiries. Your patience is very much appreciated.
Can I meet with the Tribe to discuss my application?
While the Tribe does have staff administering the donation funds, we are unable to meet with all groups to discuss applications at this time. Please note that we receive many communication requests and we may not have the capacity to immediately respond to all inquiries. Your patience is very much appreciated.
Will the Tribe give grants for general operating funds?
The Tribe welcomes applications for operating funds. Applications submitted in the past which clearly identified and outlined the value a donation would bring to an organization have been the most successful.
What if we don’t have a physical address or are unsure which address to use?
When in doubt, use the address specified in the incorporation paperwork for your 501c3 application.
