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 Except in the case of hardship as determined by the Board, applications made on outdated application forms shall be returned to the applicant with the instruction to resubmit it using the currently applicable form.

    Generally, the Mignon Sherwood Delano Foundation prefers not to fund operating expenses, especially wages and/or benefits. The Board of Directors feel that such expenses should generally be funded by the applicant's own efforts rather than from charitable sources.
    This will be strictly enforced for the 2017 grant cycle.
  • December 6, 2016
    Grant Applicants are urged to seek funding from a variety of sources, and not to rely solely on funding from the Mignon Sherwood Delano Foundation. Not only is it prudent to broaden the base of support for your operation, but the Mignon Sherwood Delano Foundation is looking for proof of community involvement and support of applicant efforts.

    Grantees will be notified by mail of the Board of Directors decision after December 6, 2016.
