The goal of a capital campaign grant is to make a significant contribution to worthy renovation or expansion projects that will enhance the mission of the recipient charity. Again, some preference is given to the use of foundation funds to stimulate matching funds.

Over the years, the Gilchrist Foundation has made about 55% of its total grants to endowment and capital campaigns. The Foundation also has a pattern of awarding about 45% of its total grants to the Arts, including not only the fine arts, but also cultural and historical groups.
