Getting Started

The first step in the process is to submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) to us, following the guidelines posted here.


Please do not submit a full proposal without first being invited by our staff to do so. Decisions on LOIs are conveyed at least one month before the proposal deadline to allow invited applicants sufficient time to prepare their full proposals.

Our trustees meet twice a year to review proposals, typically in August and December, and we inform applicants of funding decisions shortly thereafter.


If we deny your proposal for funding, please wait one year from the date of your original proposal application to submit a new request to us.

For consideration in 2025:

Please revisit our website at the beginning of the year for deadlines.
