The Donaldson Foundation is the primary instrument of Donaldson Company, Inc. for our charitable contribution efforts.
A Focus On Education The mission of the Donaldson Foundation is to positively impact the communities in which we live and work by supporting education.
Grant Guidelines Only grant applications in the focus areas as previously described will be considered. The Donaldson Foundation limits its support to local or regional agencies and programs in those communities where Donaldson employees live and work. All grant recipients must qualify for tax exemption by the IRS. A 501(c) 3 will be required. The Donaldson Foundation has two funding cycles. The first runs from August through January. Decisions for the first funding cycle are made in December with a payout in January. The second funding cycle runs from January through June with a payout in July. We accept new proposals in the first three months of a funding cycle. Proposals received after the third month are pushed to the next funding cycle for consideration.
