Donor advised funds, Agency Funds and Scholarship Funds have separate distribution timelines. Contact the Foundation for information regarding these.

An expression of interest or the provision of an application should not be considered a guarantee of funding. All grant requests go through a complete review process before any funding decision is made.

Foundation staff are always happy to assist applicants. If you submit a draft of your proposal at least 10 business days before the due date, staff will evaluate it and give you feedback on ways you might strengthen the proposal before you submit it for review.
