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.


Financial support is not guaranteed from year to year. Prior funding does not guarantee future funding. A new application will be required each year (every 12 months) from an organization that would like to be considered for a grant. Only one project from an organization will be considered for funding per year (every 12 months).

All previous Investors Foundation grant recipients must wait one year (12 months) after receiving funds to reapply for a grant.

All multi-year grant recipients must wait one year (12 months) until after receiving their final award payment before reapplying.
