GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Town of Malta Foundation Accepting Applications for 2020 Grants



The GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Town of Malta Foundation is now accepting grant applications for its next round of funding to support local community organizations.  Applications for grant funding can be submitted electronically or may be downloaded and mailed to the Foundation by November 6, 2020. Instructions and links for the application can be found at the Foundation’s Web site (URL:  https://sites.google.com/site/gfmaltafoundationorg/home).

Earlier this year, the GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Malta Foundation funded a grant of $50,000 to the Town of Malta to purchase grocery store gift cards to assist individuals and families located in the Town of Malta and affected by the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  For this grant cycle, special consideration will be given to grant applications focused on assisting the Malta community with the economic effects of the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Grants received in 2019 that could not be completed in 2020 may be completed in 2021; however, such recipient organizations will not be eligible for a grant this year.

The GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Malta Foundation manages an investment fund that enables annual grants to organizations, programs and projects that provide tangible benefits of a public nature to diverse groups serving the citizens of the Town of Malta including, not-for-profit corporations, charitable organizations, community arts and theater groups, community historical sites, special events, education programs, and sports and recreation activities.

Each year, the GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Town of Malta Foundation looks for projects that are creative, innovative, and inclusive in their scope and opportunities that will provide the maximum amount of benefit to the local Malta community.  In 2011, the GLOBALFOUNDRIES-Malta Foundation distributed its first round of grant funding by awarding a total of $37,500 to 13 local organizations.  In 2012, the dollar amount and number of grants nearly doubled.  By 2013, the investment corpus was fully funded, enabling annual grants of $160,000 on average, distributed among dozens of worthy local organizations.  A comprehensive listing of previous grant winners is available at the following link: https://sites.google.com/site/gfmaltafoundationorg/home/previous-grant-recipients
