All grant requests must be submitted electronically. No hard copies will be accepted. To apply, applicants should answer the Grant Request Questions in a Word document or directly in an email. (For Grant Request Questions, see the Foundation URL listed below.) Any necessary documents (pdf, doc, jpg only) should be included.

The Foundation recommends only one grant request per period. An applicant may submit a new request for each grant review period. Each request is studied and evaluated individually, so occasionally the Foundation has given to a particular organization multiple times.

The Foundation tries to be creative in funding, sometimes giving matching challenges or funding part of a project with suggestions for additional funding sources. It depends on the request.
