Grant Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in Billy Andrade - Brad Faxon Charities for Children. We are two professional golfers who are raising funds, so we may provide grants to charities serving children age 18 and under. We enjoy funding programs that directly affect at-risk children. For example: We will not fund the build out of a kitchen, but we may fund foods purchased for children's snacks and meals. We will not fund your capital campaign, but we may fund the purchase of playground equipment, computers, art supplies, music lessons, and after school programs, to name a few. If you believe we are a good fit with your organization, we invite you to fill out a grant application.

As you fill out your grant application, please take special care to follow our guidelines. Of special note:

  • Please use a font size of 12 or larger.
  • Be concise. Do NOT expand the size of any response areas.
  • Answer every question, and leave no spaces blank.


If you believe you need more space to fully explain your program, you may attach an additional, separate page which explains your request in depth. Please note: the inclusion of this additional page will not necessarily enhance your application's merit.
