– Timeline
– Detail on the support sought from the Silver Dollar Foundation
– Information on other sources of confirmed funding

Please note that in the case of capital projects, proposals for multi-year projects can be submitted, and support from the Foundation may in some cases be spread over a number of years.

Letters of intent and supporting documents (Annual Report, audited financial statements, newsletter, etc.) should be sent to:
