Both grantors’ purpose and activities and fields of interest coincide with Zion Hill’s
mission statement and goals – to serve homeless women with children. TJX is a
company-sponsored foundation that makes decisions six times per year. Mary Brown
only meets twice per year. Grants from Mary Brown range from a low of $5K to $100K;
TJX grants range from $100 to $203K.
Neither grantor requires an application. While both require an IRS determination letter,
current organizational budget, and Board of Directors info, TJX requires more info on the
organization, project, and financials. Both are well-suited for the ZHCDC project.
