The Snee-Reinhardt Charitable Foundation realizes that every non-profit organization has had both positive and negative experiences in submitting grant proposals.  However, due to the nature of our office, we have had our own experiences in receiving grant proposal submissions. 

We are asking that NO SIGNATURE REQUIRED be attached when sending any grant propsal.  Please read further for additional information.


  • United States Postal Service (USPS):  The United States Postal Service has changed how our mail is delivery to our business office.  We no longer have a postal worker delivering mail directly to our office which means that any Signature Required mail is now held at our local USPS branch.  Unfortunately, we have had several issues with Signature Required pieces being misplaced or lost.  We are asking that you do not send any grant proposal with SIGNATURE REQUIRED as we are no longer picking up mail at this branch.  Any SIGNATURE REQUIRED piece will be returned to your organization.
  • FedEx and UPS:  FedEx and UPS deliver at times when our office is not open.  While we can simply sign 97% of the Signature Required slips from FedEx and UPS which do not require a staff member to be present to deliver, there are 3% of deliveries that do require someone present.  This make additional delivery attempts difficult as well.  As long as we are able to sign the slip left on the door, FedEx or UPS can place the proposal in the delivery slot at our office.​
  • E-MAIL:  The Snee-Reinhardt Charitable Foundation accepts grant proposals via e-mail at  This does not require a SIGNATURE REQUIRED slip.  We encourage early submissions weeks prior to our deadline dates.  By submitting via e-mail, your organization's grant proposal allows for a quicker response including acknowledgement of receipt and notification of missing information or materials.  

If you are looking to submit a grant proposal, every organization must take the time to thoroughly read the entire For Grant Seekers section as it provides all of the necessary information for an organization to determine if it fits within our guidelines. You will find information on our Grant Request Process, Category Definitions, Limitations and Restrictions, Primary Geographic Focus and Frequently Asked Questions.  

If it is determined that your organization meets our requirements, you may obtain an application under Grant Application.  If you still have questions after reading this section, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you further.
