Grant Applications

Call to Donate


The Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation was created in April 2002, and is dedicated to helping Keys’ residents whose critical needs are not being met through other means. The funds are donated to the Foundation through the generous hearts of the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate agents, staff, associates, business partners, and the public.
     The Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month to review requests and determine whether or not to grant funding to those individuals, families, and 501c3 nonprofit organizations that qualify and have submitted the required, fully completed application. Any applications that are not complete may not be considered by the Board and can be declined without further review.

     The application deadline is the 1st of the month to be reviewed at that month’s meeting. First time applications take precedence. You may forward the application by one of the three methods listed below:

When filing an application, please keep in mind the Foundation receives monetary requests on a 
monthly basis that exceed our available funds. As a result, many otherwise worthwhile applicants 
received either no funding at all, or only a portion of the amount that had been requested. 
​Although the entire application is reviewed on its merit, some of the key areas that the Foundation examines include:

  1. Is the application complete and accurate with attached back-up information that supports the request?
  2. How long has the applicant lived in Monroe County on a continuous basis? (The Foundation requires that you have been a permanent resident in Monroe County for a minimum of three (3) years.)
  3. If the Foundation makes a “one time” donation, does the applicant then have an adequate income stream to maintain their lifestyle without further assistance?
  4. Is this an unusual “one time occurrence,” or is this going to be a case where long-term assistance is required? (It is not the purpose of the Foundation, nor does the Foundation have the financial means, to support long-term need situations.)
  5. Must have w9 for housing/landlord attached with application
