Policies and Guidelines

Objectives
At Xerox, we believe that a corporation today has institutional responsibilities that go beyond its primary economic role. If you would like to submit a grant request to the Xerox Foundation, please review and follow the guidelines below.  Please note that only those organizations receiving an investment from Xerox will be contacted. 


Guidelines for Applying
No specific application form is used. Requests for grants/funding should be submitted in the form of a letter describing the project or program.  The request should contain the legal name of the organization, the official contact person, tax- exempt status, a brief description of activities and programs, the purpose for which the grant is being requested, the benefits expected, plans for evaluation, projected budget and the expected sources and amount of needed funds.  A copy of the latest annual financial statement should be included. 
Please note:

  • Grants are made only to organizations that have been granted exemption from Federal Income Tax under Section 501 (c)(3) and ruled to be publicly supported under Section 509(a) of the Internal Revenue Code.
  • Grant application reviews take place monthly and the Board of Trustees meet several times a year.
  • Large grants may be approved for more than one year (multi-year grants).
  • All organizations that have previously received support on an annual basis from the Foundation, must re-submit a request each year to be evaluated for continued support.
Internal policies, a limited annual budget and/or application of Federal law require the Xerox Foundation to decline requests to support:
  • Individuals
  • Capital grants (must be approved by the Board of Trustees)
  • Endowments or Endowed Chairs
  • Political organizations or candidates
  • Religious or sectarian groups
  • Municipal, County, State, Federal or quasi-government agencies
Send all proposals and requests to: Mark J. Conlin President Xerox Foundation 45 Glover Avenue/P.O. Box 4505 Norwalk, CT 06856-4505
