"Toy Industry Foundation Invites Grant Proposals for Programs to Help Children in Need

"The Toy Industry Foundation invites grant proposals from nonprofit organizations seeking full or partial funding for special projects or ongoing programs designed to improve the lives of children in need. Proposals must demonstrate how grant funds will help fulfill the Toy Industry Foundation's mission to "bring joy, comfort, and learning to children in need through play."

"The foundation seeks to fund nonprofit organizations and projects in North America that enrich the lives and increase the well-being of children (infants through adolescents) or families in need through play by focusing on education (summer and school-year programming), health and safety, youth development and leadership, play and recreational activities, and/or arts and culture. The term "in need" refers to but is not limited to those affected by poverty , homelessness, special needs, pediatric illness, natural disasters, and disparity in access to education or recreational opportunities.

"The foundation accepts proposals from qualified nonprofit organizations based in North America. In the United States, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and educational organizations as defined in USC 26 § 170 (C) are eligible. Organizations based in other areas of North America (outside the U.S.) must hold similar nonprofit status designations.

"There is no set grant range.

"Grant proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis for at least the remainder of 2012.

"Visit the Toy Industry Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and proposal requirements."
