How does THBEA actually support activities?

Many of us are familiar with receiving grant funds from agencies. THBEA on the other hand is a grant-awarding organization. THBEA awards grants to advance and accomplish the four objectives in its founding documents. THBEA is limited in who may receive the funds that it awards. THBEA may award grants to other 501(c)(3) organizations and it may award grants to individuals. In each case THBEA must keep appropriate records, usually a grant application, and proof, usually in the form of a final grant report, that the recipient utilized the funds in line with THBEA’s objectives.
