Additional Eligibility Criteria
The Fund supports qualified nonprofit organizations. Organizations with a fiscal sponsor may also apply.

The Foundation encourages collaboration. One organization should submit the application as the lead organization on behalf of the collaborative partners.

The Foundation does not fund any applicant or program with a discriminatory policy that is unlawful or inconsistent with either the Foundation's mission or values.

Pre-Application Information
Application deadlines for 2023 are March 20, June 12, September 18, and November 27.

Applicants may apply once per calendar year and can expect to receive a funding decision within approximately three months of applying.

Organizations can apply for subsequent funding, but please keep in mind that it is unlikely the Foundation's grant funds can sustain an organization or program over time.
