The Limited Brands Foundation has two online applications for financial support: one for support of operations or specific programs and the other for support of events. The events form has additional questions related to prior and current year attendance, funds raised and event expenses.
There are new application forms for cash and event requests. The Limited Brands Foundation's forms for support can be found on the GO! Grants Online system, administered by The Columbus Foundation. If your organization is not registered through GO!, you will need to register as a new user.
