Saffron Circle's grantee application process begins in March, with applications due by the end of April. Members meet throughout the month of May with decisions made by mid-June.
Saffron Circle funds non-profit organizations serving Asian and Asian American communities in Massachusetts. For non-Asian organizations, funds will only be rewarded for programs directly related to serving Asians or Asian Americans.
Eligible organizations must be located in Massachusetts and tax-exempt (either 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(3)-sponsored).
Saffron Circle does not make grants to individuals, scholarships/fellowships, programs with religious purposes, political parties/candidates, government organizations, or building campaigns.
