The WITH Foundation has two open grant cycles open to all eligible applicants. The open grant cycles begin March 1 and November 1 of each year. LOIs will be accepted until December 13, 2017 at 11:59pm PST.
Applying during the open grant cycle is a two-tiered procedure. In order to save prospective applicants the time and effort involved with the preparation of a formal grant application, a letter of interest (LOI) is required. To submit an LOI during an open cycle, the first step is to create an account (if you do not already have one). The LOI is not a grant proposal, but simply a means to gather some basic information about your organization and to determine if a formal grant proposal is aligned with the funding guidelines. No other unsolicited information will be considered.
If your LOI is of interest, you will be invited to submit a full proposal. Invitations for full proposals will be sent out the following week along with access to the formal grant proposal application. Even if your LOI is not a fit, your submission will be acknowledged.
If you would like, staff is available to help you understand the funding guidelines and discuss your project ideas with you. Especially if you plan to request a large grant, prior discussion with staff is encouraged.
