Pre-Application Information:

The Foundation accepts proposal letters all year. It may take up to six months from the arrival of a proposal letter to approval of a formal grant application by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. The Board of Directors meets twice a year, and all funding decisions are made at these meetings.

New applicants or those who have been declined for funding in the past year, please submit a proposal letter that summarizes the project (limit 2 pages). Those proposal letters that fit the Foundation's current priorities move on to the second step. Those requests that do not fit the Foundation's guidelines will receive acknowledgment of the receipt of the proposal letter.

After acceptance of the proposal letter, an applicant may access the on-line application or applications may also be provided by mail.

Organizations may apply once per calendar year.
