Policy on Non-discrimination

The Gorman Foundation will not award grant support to organizations that, in their constitution, bylaws or practices, discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliation, or religious belief. Grantees may target services to a particular population when the targeted groups require specialized programs to meet specific needs not shared by the general population.
