Stratton Foundation Giving

The Stratton Foundation provides Moving Mountains for the purpose of identifying children and families that are struggling with basic living needs and require support with extra expenses as the children grow. Community & institutional administrators manage and allocate funds to provide basic living supplies, such as:

  • Hats, shoes, mittens, gloves, snowsuits
  • Gas cards, Transportation assistance
  • Food, grocery cards, gift cards for clothing/living supplies
  • Educational supplies, events, and opportunities not otherwise afforded
  • Personal care or health items

The Stratton Foundation maintains a Disaster Emergency Fund in the event of a qualified natural disaster, defined as severe weather such as a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood or damage caused by terrorist or military actions qualified by the federal government. These events will be administered through the Foundation's existing 'Disaster Relief' model established during the 2011 Hurricane Irene Recovery Plan.



Stratton Foundation Grants & Applications 

The Stratton Foundation Emergency Assistance Grant (EAG) provides direct financial assistance to individuals and families experiencing hardship due to an unexpected event or incidence of emergency beyond a person's control that in the short term makes it difficult to provide basic life necessities of safety, security, sanitation, for themselves and/or their families.

Consideration for assistance includes:

  • A resident within existing Stratton Foundation Footprint;
  • A result of a qualified short-term unexpected incidence;
  • Require referral/endorsement of incident from reliable third-party – i.e., Neighborhood Connections, food banks, Just Neighbors, churches, school administrator, Red Cross, etc., or otherwise at the discretion of the Foundation.
