Grants to Oregon organizations for programs that address the needs of residents with intellectual disabilities in eligible regions. Funding is intended to enrich and improve the lives and well-being of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Grant funds are limited to Josephine County.
The intended beneficiaries of the Rose Douglas Trust are those organizations who provide benefits to residents of Josephine County who have an “intellectual disability” as defined as follows: significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning defined as intelligence quotients (IQs) under 70 as measured by a qualified professional and existing concurrently with significant impairment in adaptive behavior that are manifested during the developmental period, prior to 18 years of age. Individuals of borderline intelligence, IQs 70-75, may be considered to have intellectual disability if there is also significant impairment of adaptive behavior as diagnosed and measured by a qualified professional.
Many worthy programs include the intellectually disabled in their provision of services, however, this funding is limited to programs which significantly affect or serve this population, are specialized to the needs of this population, or provide particular high-quality training in how to meet the needs of this population in the context of other essential services. Having some intellectually disabled persons within a broad client base is not adequate to qualify for this funding area.
The Four Way Foundation will require those organizations who choose to submit a grant application to demonstrate why they meet the qualifications for a grant from Rose Douglas Trust funds and how their project will better the lives of the intended intellectually disabled beneficiaries.
