Welcome to the Mignon Sherwood DeLano Foundation WebSite

Organizations with demonstrated unmet financial requirements working toward the furtherance of humanitarian, educational, cultural, and environmental enrichment in the City of Allegan and Allegan County are encouraged to apply.

Please take a moment to browse through our website to learn the history of the Mignon Sherwood DeLano Foundation and what we do for the Allegan Community. Please contact us with any questions you might have, and thank you.

APPLICATION FORM: Grant applicants are expected to use the grant application which has been designed for the year in which the application is being made. Except in the case of hardship as determined by the Board, applications made on outdated application forms shall be returned to the applicant with the instruction to resubmit it using the currently applicable form.

Please DO NOT use staples or print your grant application two-sided.

The Mignon Sherwood Delano Foundation prefers not to fund operating expenses, especially wages and/or benefits. The Board of Directors feels that such expenses should generally be funded by the applicant's own efforts rather than from charitable sources.
We will make no exceptions to this policy.
