Our Letter of Inquiry submission period is now open and will close on September 7, 2021.

General Application Information:

The Tomberg Family Philanthropies has made two significant changes to our application process for this grant cycle.

  • Funding Areas: This funding cycle we will only be supporting new projects in the areas of education and poverty alleviation.Normally we also support projects in the environment and health areas, but we found that those funding areas had received extra support over the past few years. Therefore, we are only reviewing proposals in education and poverty alleviation for this funding cycle. We will again be supporting projects in the environment and health funding areas in future years. Current grantees may submit requests for continued funding for the project we funded in 2020 – 2021 regardless of the funding area.
  • Submission Timing: Previously no preference was given to Letters of Inquiry that we received earlier in the submission period. However this year, once the submission period opens, do not delay submitting your Letter of Inquiry to receive a thorough, multi-person review of your submissions. Unfortunately, due to the large number of applications received, we can only commit to this level of review for those Letters of Inquiry submitted earlier in the application process. We will consider all valid submissions received before September 7, 2021, but earlier submissions will be prioritized to receive the most thorough consideration.
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.
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 LiveImpact grant management system. Click here for instructions.
We are using the LiveImpact grant management system in order to improve our efficiency and to enhance our ability to respond to grant requests accurately and in a timely manner.  We no longer accept LOIs by email. If you have technical difficulties submitting your Letter of Inquiry please contact the technical support system as described in your acknowledgement email or email info@tombergphilanthropies.org .
We have prepared two videos to help you better understand how to write strong grant requests. You can find them at https://www.tombergphilanthropies.org/how-to-write-a-better-grant-request/ . 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.
