Supporting and strengthening nonprofit organizations.

Truliant Foundation’s Charitable Giving program provides support to nonprofit organizations who are strengthening and improving local communities where Truliant members live, work, worship or attend school. The Truliant Foundation Charitable Giving committee reviews proposals that are submitted through this program once a quarter, as highlighted below in the 2024 Charitable Grant Cycle timeline. During times when the application portal is closed, we encourage you to submit a charitable giving interest form as an initial point of contact. This information can then be used to submit a full application when the application portal is open.

Any nonprofit organization interested in receiving a charitable grant must complete the Charitable Giving application.
