Wayne County

Funding Opportunity

(ACTIVE) Bullis Fund

Purpose

The Bullis Fund was created from the estate of Jeanette 'Nettie' Bullis, an astute businesswoman whose family settled in Macedon in the late 1830s. Grants from income generated by the endowment fund are recommended by a committee of Wayne County representatives to reflect Miss Bullis' interest in improving the quality of life of residents of Wayne County, especially in the Town of Macedon or within the area served by the Palmyra-Macedon Central School District. Miss Bullis believed strongly in providing a "hand up" not a "hand out." Therefore, most grants require a matching component.

Typical Grant Size

More than $5,000

Applicants requesting less than $5,000 should submit their request to the Wayne County Community Endowment (WCCE). Applicants applying for the Bullis funding are not eligible to apply for WCCE funding for the same or similar programs.

Eligibility Criteria

Charitable organizations providing non-sectarian services within Wayne County are eligible to submit applications for funding. Organizations that provide professional services must meet any accreditation or certification standards applicable to their fields.

Funding Criteria
All criteria must be met for a request to be considered. Applications must:

  • Show how the project/program provides direct or indirect benefit to residents of Macedon or southwest Wayne County;
  • Indicate how the project/program makes the community significantly better and/or how it has significant community-wide impact;
  • Indicate matching or leveraged support from other constituencies. Bullis Fund grants will not fund 100 percent of any project; and
  • Provide evidence of ongoing stability and financial sustainability for the funded projects. How projects will be funded in the future is a key consideration.

NOTE: Grants are neither renewable nor guaranteed.

Grants will not be provided for:

  • Administrative overhead or grantwriting expenses;
  • Projects or programs that memorialize named persons;
  • General operating support;
  • Sole support of ongoing programs; or
  • Projects that do not directly benefit residents of southwest Wayne County

Organizations are urged to participate in one of a variety of communications programs through Causewave Community Partners (formerly The Ad Council of Rochester). Contact Katelin at KPellett@causewave.org or 585.442.0200, ext. 204 for more information about the programs and grant support for programming.
