The 2024 – 2025 grant cycle will open on July 22, 2024.


General Application Information:

Please see the About Our Grants page for general information about our grants.

We have developed a Grant Qualification Assessment tool to help you determine if your organization would be a good fit for our grants. Please take the Assessment before you request our support.

If you pass the Assessment, you will be provided with a list of the Letter of Inquiry questions. Since the LOI submission period will only be open to unsolicited proposals for one or two days, we suggest that you use the question list to prepare your LOI before the submission period opens.

Any organization considering a grant application should first submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) to us as described below. All organizations, including those that have received funding from us in the past, must submit LOIs if they want to be considered for funding. Letters of Inquiry and Full Proposals should be submitted using the Foundant grant management system. Click here for instructions.
We have prepared two videos to help you better understand how to write strong grant requests. You can find them at . These videos are only intended as optional guidance on our grant application process. All of the information that organizations need to submit successful applications can be found in the “Our Grants“ section of our website.
