    Foundation Policies


    In an effort to promote good governance and fundraising practices, the Browning Kimball Foundation may limit grants of operational support to four (4) successive years. At that time, the Board may decided to cease funding. Browning Kimball Foundation grantees are encouraged to maintain a large funding base and not become reliant on one funder.
