Timing for Grant Consideration:

Grant applications will be considered four times a year in March, June, September, and December. Grant applications must be submitted by February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1 for each respective meeting. There is an ongoing preliminary review of proposals so early submission is encouraged.

Requests submitted after these dates will be deferred for consideration to the following meeting. Due to the large volume of inquiries received, it may be physically impossible to answer all of them; however, every effort will be made to respond.

Applicants are encouraged to be mindful of the Foundation’s funding timeline to ensure that the proposed project corresponds with Foundation’s funding schedule.
