The William G. Gilmore Foundation was created by the late William G. Gilmore. He built Gilmore Steel Corporation in San Francisco, California and Portland, Oregon, and was a philanthropist, sportsman, and civic leader in San Francisco. The William G. Gilmore Foundation is a private, independent foundation which carries on Mr. Gilmore’s philanthropy.
The trustees of the foundation meet twice
each year, in June and December, to approve grants. Grants range from
$1,000 to $100,000 and average about $15,000 in value.
The board of directors of the foundation reviews all proposals and makes all funding decisions. The staff is unable to provide advice or feedback on denials. The staff also cannot provide advice on the application process, which is fully explained on our website. The next submission deadline for EOIs and Renewal Requests is between Monday, March 18 - Monday, April 1, 2013 for the June 2013 meeting.
