Grantmaking & Grant Programs

Approach All Grants

Overview

We accept both letters of inquiries and applications on a rolling basis and they are reviewed quarterly. The Foundation uses an online process for both letter of inquires and applications and all communications are handled through the grant portal. If your letter of inquiry represents a realistic, strategic, and potentially successful opportunity to advance the mission of the Foundation, you will be invited to submit a full proposal. While it is important for your request to align with our vision and mission, that does not guarantee an invitation to apply. Other factors, such as available grant funds and other projects under consideration or in the process, will impact acceptance of requests.

We have committed our Fiscal Year 2020 Grant Dollars.

We are not accepting applications at this time. In the Spring of 2020, the Foundation will release the Fiscal Year 2021 application and review schedule. Please check back for more details.
