Applications are due on or before January 31st and July 31st. Final grant decisions will be announced 9-12 weeks after each deadline.

All applications that are eligible to apply for funding are read by the Foundation founder. A first round of cuts will be made. Staff will contact you 4-6 weeks after the grant deadline to let you know how your application is progressing. If your project has been declined support you will know at this time. If your application makes it past the first round of review it means that it will now be evaluated by the full grants committee. Staff will either call or email to inform you about the status of your application and to discuss "next steps." As part of this second phase of evaluation staff may ask to conduct a site visit or invite you to present your project at program review.
