We accept and process Letters of Inquiry (LOI) and applications on an ongoing basis, which means there are no set deadlines. All grant applications must be submitted through our online grants portal.
Our Board of Trustees review and approve grants at least quarterly
We encourage all applicants to discuss applications with a program officer before submitting an LOI and throughout the process as necessary to align with the Board's decision-making calendar and to ensure all eligibility criteria are met.
Step 1: Review eligibility requirements
Step 2: Create an online account (new users only) or log in to your existing account on the online grants portal.
Grant Portal tips:
- Most application and grant notifications are sent via email. Contact us with changes to your contact information or if you have staff changes to stay current on your application notifications or grant requirements.
- When you create a log-in for our grants management portal, it will be specific to the user/email. If yo would like multiple individuals at your organization to have access to the same applications or grants concurrently, consider using an organization email (email@example.com) rather than an individual's email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
