The Chatlos Foundation, based in Longwood, FL, was founded by Bridgeport, CT builder and lumber man William Chatlos. The foundation’s areas of interest are: high school education, Bible colleges/seminaries, faith-based efforts, healthcare, liberal arts colleges and social services.
Grants to Bible colleges and seminaries total 33% of foundation distribution with an individual award range of $10,000 to $50,000. First time grantees normally receive about $10,000 each. Grantees may receive only one grant per 12-month period. Organizations may resubmit six months after a denial. The foundation expects the projects it funds eventually to become independent of the Chatlos Foundation.
