Do we pay for the marker or incur any other expenses?
No. The Pomeroy Foundation provides grants that pay for the entire cost of the marker, pole and shipping. Our grants do not require matching funds.
Once the marker grant application is approved, you will receive an email with a Letter of Agreement to be signed electronically by an authorized representative of your organization. When this is completed, the Foundation will mail a check for the total cost to your organization, as well as information that explains how to order the marker from our foundry.
The grantee is only responsible for the installation. Local public works, highway department or civic organizations often volunteer to help with this step.
