Frequently Asked Questions

If you can’t find the answer to a question you are looking for here, please feel free to contact us

How do I apply to the Foundation for funding?

Our application process begins with a short email to the foundation demonstrating how your organization’s program closely aligns with one of our four philanthropic pillars.  We will invite you to complete an application if we believe there is synergy and if the current year’s budget can support the request.

If invited to submit a full application, instructions to access the online portal will be provided. Once submitted, a full proposal may take up to six months to review before a funding decision is returned. Applications are generally considered in date order of receipt. View our grant programs.

When can I apply for a grant?

The Foundation accepts LOIs on a rolling basis (daily, no deadlines), and applicants can expect a response within approximately six weeks. Due to funding constraints, we are able to consider only one request per organization annually. If your request is declined, your organization will be eligible to apply again 12 months after the date of your declination.
