In performing its due diligence for each grant request, the Klee Foundation looks at the proposed program to understand how it relates to the organization’s mission and long-range plan.  Equally important are the policies that its board has put in place to ensure effective management of the organization, to adhere to legal requirements, and to promote best practices.   For this reason we ask that a Board officer respond to the following questions.  Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have concerning this form.
