FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
May we request a meeting to discuss possible funding opportunities prior to submitting an application?
Although a meeting is not necessary, the office is happy to meet with any organization. Please contact the office to arrange a date and time.
We are a first-time applicant, for how much should we ask?
We never advise an organization in this regard; however, no matter the amount of your request, you must provide a detailed budget outlining how the funds will be used or, in the case of capital needs, quotes from contractors, suppliers, etc.
Can we apply more than one time per calendar year?
If your application was denied, you are welcome to reapply in the same calendar year; however, if you've already received funding, you must wait until the following calendar year to reapply.
Must our application be hand-delivered?
No. In fact, effective January 1, 2020, we discontinued accepting hand-delivered applications. All requests should be sent via USPS or overnight courier to:
The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation
Attn: Larry A, Hartman, Executive Director
213 Market Street, 12th floor
Harrisburg, PA 17101
When will we receive notification as to the status of our application?
The office is unable to make notification to any organization until such time that a draft of the meeting minutes has been approved; this process can take as long as 30 days, or more. All notifications are made via USPS only to the person who signed the application cover letter or, if no cover letter, the contact person listed in the application. Please do not call or e-mail the office in this regard.
