Welcome to the National Life Group Application Platform

Welcome to National Life’s charitable grant and corporate sponsorship application page!


BEFORE YOU APPLY FOR A GRANT, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY: Our grant application is open between January 1 and March 31. We will not accept applications after midnight on March 31. 

We will communicate decisions regarding your application in May with approved donations sent in June. If your grant application is approved, it could be for a partial amount. We strive to fund as many as we can that fall within our focus areas, have direct and substantial impact, highlight collaboration with other organizations to achieve results, and exhibit sustainability.


Our sponsorship application is open year-round beginning in January, although our budget tends to be depleted by the end of August. The sooner you can share your event or program with us, the better. Please submit your application at least two months prior to the anticipated start date to provide ample time to consider your request. We also ask that you provide as much quantifiable data as possible – applications that demonstrate the greatest impact as supported through proven metrics such as number of attendees and promotional reach are more likely to be considered.        

Our primary focus is on programs that help end childhood hunger and/or support children’s mental health. Our secondary focus is community development. Our primary giving areas are central and northern Vermont and the Dallas, Texas region. We do not donate money to religious, political, or fraternal organizations. Finally, we don’t make grants to organizations that discriminate in any way on the basis of race, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, or sexual orientation.

Since 1848, National Life has been committed to helping others through our products, financial and in-kind donations and volunteerism, recognizing that strong communities support strong businesses. We’re interested in learning about your organization and the good it does!
