If you believe your organization or project is a match with our grant guidelines, use the following link tosubmit an inquiryand tell us about your work in our online form. The inquiry has space for you to briefly answer two questions: What do you want to do? Why?
We do five or six grant dockets of 10-15 grants each per year. We do a docket approximately every two months of the year, starting with applications due in January for grants in February.
We regularly review inquiries to see whether or not one might be a match for our guidelines and, if so, where it might fit in one of those dockets. Our goal is to be able to respond quickly, but also to build grant dockets that make sense together and balance across our issue and approach priorities.
If we invite a proposal, we will try to give you about four weeks to submit an application. We try to only invite a proposal if we think there is a good chance your work will be a match for our board’s priorities. It usually takes us about four weeks from your application deadline to let you know whether or not we will be able to make a grant, and we can send a check within a few days (once we’ve received your signed grant agreement).
