The ALA Foundation can also serve on behalf of ALA entities seeking funding assistance when a granting entity only provides funding to 501 (c)(3) organizations. This unique granting opportunity is referenced below as a subgrant and these grant applications are processed in the order that they are received; not quarterly. The ALA Foundation is dedicated to assisting ALA units, districts/counties, and departments in their efforts to fund and support local veterans, military, and their families.
