The American Honda Foundation is awarding grants of up to $75,000 each to groups that support education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, in addition to the environment. Who may apply: organizations classified as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, public school districts, private/public elementary and secondary schools listed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics. To be considered, organizations must have two years of audited financial statements examined by an independent certified public accountant for the purpose of expressing an opinion if gross revenue is $500,000 or more. If gross revenue is less than $500,000, and the organization does not have audits, it may submit two years of financial statements accompanied by an independent CPA’s review report instead.
