Winter storms have brought snow, ice and dangerously low temperatures to Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Here's how to help.

Can I recommend a grant to support scholarship or tuition payment?

A grant cannot be recommended for the tuition payment of a specific individual(s) chosen by the donor(s) or related third party. This includes, but is not limited to, grants for school tuition and other required fees, such as enrollment fees and deposits, fundraising obligations where the school considers the payment a non-deductible tuition payment.

You may, however, recommend a grant for the purpose of supporting a scholarship program established at and administered by a qualified public charity, so long as the recipient of the scholarship is not related to the recommending donor and does not satisfy a financial obligation of the recommending donor(s) or related third parties.
