Pre-Application Information:

Before submitting a Pre-Application Summary Form, first-time applicants or repeat applicants with a change in key executive leadership or development staff are required to contact the Foundation no later than 30 days prior to the deadline to schedule a preliminary interview.

An organization wishing to apply for a grant must submit one copy of the Pre-Application Summary (attached) to the Foundation no later than April 1 for the spring cycle or October 1 for the fall cycle. The Foundation will send an acknowledgment email upon receipt. Please contact the Foundation if you have not received a reply within 48 hours.

If your organization has previously received a grant, the Foundation must also have a follow-up form: Grant Award Follow-Up Form (attached), for that prior grant in order to be considered. Grant recipients are not eligible to re-apply until two full years after their last award. For example, if your organization received a grant in the fall of 2016, your next eligible grant cycle would be fall of 2018.

Within approximately 30 days of receiving the Pre-Application Summary form, Foundation staff will notify those organizations from which the Grants Committee has requested a full application. If your organization has not received a response from the Foundation within 30 days, please contact the Foundation office.

Grant award letters will be mailed in late June and mid-December.
