Introduction

Each year, ARDC intends to award a total of several million dollars in grants of varied amounts to qualified recipients that can benefit from our funding. All of these awards must be used in a way that is in accord with ARDC’s mission. Some grants may be awarded for a more restricted purpose — they are given for application to or in support of a specified purpose or goal. Each award is accompanied by a letter denoting the purpose(s) for which the funds may be used by the recipient. Most, but not all, awards will be one-time (i.e, not repeated annually).

Qualifying for a Grant from ARDC

An entity requesting a grant from ARDC must qualify under the following:

  • The entity must be a public charity organization, either qualified by the US Internal Revenue service by having been recognized as exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the IRC, or, for non-US organizations, by presenting a determination by competent counsel stating that under the laws of that organization’s country, the entity is the equivalent of a US 501(c)(3) exempt public charity.‡

And,

  • The entity’s purpose must align with one or more of the stated purposes of ARDC. In the case where the entity in turn grants scholarships that the requested grant will in whole or in part fund, a scholarship itself must be for education or research into subject matter within the stated purposes of ARDC.

‡We hope that at some future date we will have approval from the IRS and sufficient administrative resources to carry out the government-required qualification and supervision of individuals and groups who do not meet the above public charity qualifications so that we may award grants to them too.
