How to Apply
Qualified organizations which meet the Foundation’s grant making guidelines are invited to submit a "letter of inquiry" through our online grants portal. Logon instructions will be provided once your click on the site. After review of your inquiry, you will be notified if we believe that your organization is a good match for funding from the Foundation. Initial interest from the Foundation does not indicate that you will be invited to apply for funding. In order to be considered, you must complete the form in its entirety.

Click here to start.

If your letter of inquiry is approved, then you will be invited to submit a full grant application through the Foundation's online grants portal. An email notification will be sent to the applicant on file regarding next steps. Please do not contact the Foundation regarding the status of your application.

Grant Deadlines
Letters of inquiry are accepted throughout the year but are reviewed by the Board in March, June, September and December. Letters of inquiry and full grant proposals (if invited) must be received by the 10th of the month prior to the upcoming meeting month in order to be reviewed. Requests not received by that date will be considered at the next quarterly board meeting.
