Family Awards


Satterberg Foundation Family Awards are made at the invitation of family members not serving on the Board. Throughout the year, these family members are able to nominate organizations that resonate both with their own personal passions and the Foundation’s mission, vision and values. Each Family Award is $2,000 for general operating support.


Eligible organizations include those that are:

  • 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofits (or fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)3 organization)
  • Nondiscriminatory in its policies and practices in regards to sex, race, color, marital status, national origin, religious affiliation,
    disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran status, and age
  • Nonevangelical in its work
  • Aligned with the mission, vision, and values of the Satterberg Foundation

Guidelines & Process


Satterberg Foundation family members identify nonprofit organizations of interest, and along with staff guide nominated organizations through the application process.

Staff is on hand to assist with any technical questions that may arise for applicants as they navigate the online grant system.
