What We Fund

Grant guidelines

The Kistler-Tiffany Foundation provides grants to nonprofit organizations who service our two priority audiences: Physically and Mentally Challenged & Underprivileged and Abused. Organizations submitting proposals for consideration must qualify for 501(c)3 tax-exempt status. Photographs and/or video materials of your project or organization are certainly helpful, but not required. In some situations, a Foundation representative may also visit your organization to review your proposal in more detail.

Though we would love to help everyone, the Kistler-Tiffany Foundation generally does not fund:

  • For-profit organizations
  • Political organizations or activities
  • Capital or building campaigns
  • Meetings, conferences, or workshops
  • Sports teams or athletic competitions
  • Fundraising dinners, galas, and events
  • An organization’s day-to-day operating costs


The following organizations were the recipients of a cumulative of $70,000 in grants from the Kistler-Tiffany Foundation in 2019.
