What types of requests are not funded?
We are unable to support:
- Endowment funds

How do I apply?
All requests must be submitted through our grantmaking software Foundant. Requests for the Spring Grant Cycle may be submitted January through February 15th. For the Fall Grant Cycle, requests may be submitted July through August 15th.

If you need a contact added to an already established organization account, or have additional questions, please email our Grants Manager.
The person who submitted our request documents is no longer with our organization. How can I gain access to his/her online account?
To gain access to past grant applications and other documents in the grants portal, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can update your organization account and delegate access.
May I submit more than one funding request? How often may I apply?
Organizations are limited to a single request per year. When applying, organizations should consider all potential requests for the year including any event sponsorship requests.
When will funding decisions be made?
Funding decisions are announced in May and November.
I do not have all of the required documents in an electronic format. How can I submit them?
Contact us via email at email@example.com and we’ll send instructions.
Can I just email you my funding request?
How do I apply for an event sponsorship?
The sponsorship application is available here. Organizations will be limited to a single sponsorship application in a 12-month period. Organizations planning to submit a LOI and a sponsorship application should complete both applications during the same grant cycle.
