Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations to support local fire departments and emergency response services in eligible locations. Funding may be requested for expenses related to training, equipment, personnel, supplies, travel, occupancy, and other costs. Proposals should benefit Washington County.

The Range Resources Good Neighbors Fund was established to support fire departments and emergency management services organizations in Range’s core operating area.

Special consideration will be given to applications which:

  • Improve upon the effectiveness of existing organizations. Proposals to establish new charities will receive particular scrutiny.
  • Enable an existing organization to establish a new program or to expand an existing program.
  • Have multiple funding sources. Multiple funding sources help validate a proposal. Normally, the Foundation will not be the only source of support for a particular project.
  • Have a broad impact upon the community.
  • Leverage additional money as a challenge grant.
