Types of Grants
Each year the Easton Sports Development Foundation ll gives out grants which benefit archery and/or bow hunting.
Grant requests of less than $25,000 from qualified 501(c)3 organizations may be eligible to receive funding. Grants that exceed $25,000, or applicants that are not qualified 501(c)3 organizations may also receive funding. These types of organizations may be required to submit additional information for the Grant Committee to review before making its decision.
GRANT REVISION — Please note that the grant deadlines of September 1 and March 1 only apply to grants that are for $25,000 or more. If your request is for less than $25,000 you can submit it at any time, please allow about 30-60 days for review.
ESDF is partnering directly with NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) and other groups to help fund schools that are interested in NASP. If your school is interested in running NASP please contact your local state representative (find yours at www.nasparchery.com). Please note that as of July 1st, 2011, ESDF no longer processes requests for NASP funding. All requests need to go through the state representatives or NASP.
If you are interested in getting funding for an archery range/facility please read the Selection Criteria for Foundation Archery Centers.

Foundation Grant Proposal Review and Selection Process
Proposals will be evaluated for eligibility and ranked by the Board of Directors and staff of ESDF or their designee(s). The individuals on the evaluation team have substantial experience with archery and bowhunting and have familiarity with the Foundation Strategic Plans. The team will evaluate how well each applicant’s proposal addresses the goals and objectives of the Foundation Strategic Plans.
Please see the application for details on the grant review and approval process.
Indirect Cost Policy for Project Grants and Contracts for Applicant Organizations
The Foundation is a charitable entity and is not committed to matching the indirect cost rates of the U.S. government or other entities. We recognize that this means that: (a) some grantees may need to engage in cost sharing between projects, tap into unrestricted funds, or conduct other fundraising to cover operations; or (b) some contractors may choose not to contract with the foundation. However, we believe our policy is consistent with that of many private foundations and certain government entities that have a flat or maximum rate that caps the amount an applicant institution can charge. The Foundation’s policy helps ensure furtherance of our charitable purpose.
Definition of Indirect Costs
- Overhead expenses or ongoing operational costs incurred by the applicant organization on behalf of the organization’s activities and projects, but that are not easily identified with any specific project.
- Administrative or other expenses which are not directly allocable to a particular activity or project.
- Expenses related to general operations of an organization that are shared among projects and/or functions.
- Basic examples include executive oversight, existing facilities costs, accounting, grants management, legal expenses, utilities, and technology support. To further aid the interpretation of this definition, the Foundation has established examples for the use of our applicants and prospective applicants, which are included in the examples below.
- Existing facilities costs (e.g. rent, maintenance, etc.) such as:
- University headquarters
- Country/regional offices
- Utilities for existing facilities
- Existing Information technology equipment and support (e.g. centralized IT systems, networks, etc.)
- Existing shared equipment
- Existing equipment maintenance
- Depreciation on equipment
- Communications expenses (e.g. phones, etc.)
- Administrative office supplies
