Step 2:

Submit a letter of inquiry.

All potential grantee partners are required to submit a preliminary letter of inquiry. We use this letter to determine basic eligibility and fit with our selection criteria.

Step 3:

Wait for an invitation to apply.

If a letter of inquiry falls within our priorities and selection criteria, we will follow up with the organization to request a full proposal. Full proposals are accepted by invitation only. Due to the high volume of requests, we will not be able to fund all organizations that fit our giving guidelines and mission.

Please do not contact us by phone or by email to ask about the status of your letter of inquiry. Due to the volume of inquiries, we cannot respond individually to those not selected for further consideration.

Step 4:

Complete your full application.

If you receive an invitation to apply, complete the required information and submit back within 30 days. Grantees will be required to submit additional reporting at the end of the grant cycle. Failure to submit required information will impact future funding.
