Non-profit organizations need an access code to apply for a grant as applications are currently available on an invitation-only basis.
Invited grant applicants will first complete an LOI (Letter of Inquiry) to determine if the organization and project fits within the scope of the foundation's current focus. If the LOI is accepted the applicant is invited to proceed with an official grant application. The application will be reviewed and if necessary a site visit will be conducted.
Accepted applications will be evaluated by an outside advisor before being presented at the quarterly board meeting for consideration. The board will consider the applications and determine an approval or denial based on alignment of focus, social impact, and funds available.
