What is the Application Process?

After viewing our funding guidelines and speaking with the Executive Director about your request, submit your request using the Foundation’s online application. The link to the application is on the tab “Apply Now” on this website. Grant deadlines are also listed there.

What is the Review Process?

The Board of Directors meets three times per year. Application deadlines precede the meeting by approximately one month.
