If you have questions about the Ally grants program, review the FAQs below or email us if you need more help.
Can one organization receive multiple financial grants?
No. We only award one grant per organization each calendar year.
What should I do if I have additional questions?
If you have any questions about Ally grants, email us.
How do I know if my organization and project is eligible to receive a financial grant from Ally?
You are required to confirm eligibility before you complete the grant application.
If my organization’s 501(c)(3), tax-exempt public charity status is pending, does my organization qualify to receive a financial grant?
No. Your organization must have an approved status.
Are fiscally sponsored programs and organizations eligible for an Ally grant?
Fiscally sponsored programs and organizations are not eligible. Fiscal sponsorship refers to the practice of nonprofit organizations offering their legal and tax-exempt status to groups engaged in activities related to the organization's missions. It typically involves a fee-based contractual arrangement between a project and an established nonprofit.
