Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) may be submitted at any time and are reviewed year-round by the Foundation’s Grants Committee.
Grant Applications are considered twice each year by invitation only (following approval of a Letter of Inquiry).
Annual Grant Applications for Grant Cycle 1 are due by December 20. A decision regarding the application is generally made by the end of February.
Annual Grant Applications for Grant Cycle 2 are due by June 20. A decision regarding the application is generally made by the end of August.
In order to meet the grant application deadlines, the Foundation encourages applicants to submit LOIs at least 90 days before the deadline. This ensures that the Grants Committee has adequate time to review the LOI and address any questions. This also allows the applicant time to complete the full application and meet the deadline.
