Grant Application Information

We continue to be interested in funding the agencies and programs our employees and family members are passionate about and support. We are especially interested in outcomes and results from the prior year’s funding.

Note: We are interested in funding specific programs and innovative new efforts. We will not fund general operating expenses.

To apply for a Luminous Fund grant, click apply online.

To request funds, you will need to submit the following information:

  • Name and address of the organization
  • Person (and email) submitting the request and also how you are connected to either a Briljent employee or Carrier family member
  • Amount requested
  • Specific purpose of the requested funds
  • Mission statement and purpose of the organization. In addition to this indicate if you are affiliated with a religious organization. If so, what is your religious affiliation and how is it reflected in your work?
  • Measurement of success
  • List of board of directors
  • Current financial statements and/or annual report

The Luminous Fund is primarily interested in funding agencies that matter to two groups of people:

  • Briljent employees
  • Carrier family members

If you are not connected to either group, it is unlikely your grant submission will be successful. In 2022 and 2023, we are focused on making a bigger impact on fewer agencies. If you have questions, contact our founder and Secretary, Kathy Carrier,
