SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

LETTERS OF INQUIRY

If you are seeking support for the first time or if you are a returning grantee seeking support for a new project, we recommend that you send us a letter of inquiry before you submit a full proposal. This allows us to give you preliminary feedback concerning your request and its potential fit within our funding priorities. Letters of inquiry should include a brief description of the proposed project and a project budget.

PROPOSAL PROCEDURES

While proposals may vary in length, we prefer proposals that adhere to the procedures described below. We do not use any formal grant applications; however, concise proposals are appreciated. Generally, we make one-year, one-time grants and consider each grantee and program in the context of our current programmatic goals. The proposal should include:

  1. A brief history of the organization, including its primary purpose and goals

  2. A project description, including: a statement of the issue to be addressed and a description of how the planned project will address the issue with clearly stated goals or objectives
