Pre-Application Information:

Mandatory - Letter of Inquiry Deadline: July 1, 2010

If you pass the Eligibility Test (https://www.grantrequest.com/SID_248/?SA=SNA&FID=35042), you will gain access to the next step in the application process – the Letter of Inquiry (LOI) questionnaire. The LOI questionnaire asks specific questions about the project for which you are seeking funding.

Complete and submit the LOI online by the appropriate deadline. The Foundation will review each submitted LOI, evaluate the project for alignment with Foundation goals and interests, and determine whether it is competitive enough to move forward.

Applicants will receive an email notification within approximately 2-3 weeks of the LOI deadline inviting the organization to complete a full project description. Those organizations that do not qualify will receive a declination email.

LOIs received after the deadline will be immediately declined without review.
