How to Apply for a Nordson Grant

You must apply using our online application. Nordson does not accept paper applications.

All Nordson grant applications must include a current 501(c)3 status letter and a list of the organization's officers and directors with their affiliations. An audited financial report and an annual report may be included, as well as any other relevant paperwork.

Deadlines for submitting your Nordson grant application are:

  • Ohio (Lorain County) - February 15, May 15, August 15 and November 15
  • Georgia - August 15, May 15 and November 15
  • California - February 15, August 15 and November 15

It is suggested that organizations contact the Foundation staff member who represents their geographic area before submitting an application to determine if the grant request falls within the Foundation's priorities.

How Nordson Grant Funds Are Allocated
