Preference is given to organizations located in the following areas: Southern California and Petoskey/Harbor Springs, Michigan. Organizations with which Ayrshire board members have some personal involvement are also given priority.

The foundation board meets semi-annually, with a fiscal year that begins in January. Only in rare instances are grants considered between semi-annual funding cycles. Completed grant proposals are appreciated by March 15 for our April meeting, and September 15 for our October meeting.
