How to Apply

Grantseekers should first contact a member of our Program Team to explore potential funding.

Step 1: Contact our Program Team. Email or call a Program Team member based on whether your grant application supports K-12 Education, Afterschool, or College & Career Pathways.

Step 2: Complete the pre-application. Pre-applications are reviewed by the Foundation’s Program Team. You do not need to complete your pre-application in one sitting; you can save and return to your pre-appliction at a later time. You will receive email confirmation that we have received your pre-application and will generally hear back from us in 15 days. Team members may request a lengthier application from grant seekers for further consideration

Application Timeline

The Foundation reviews grant requests year-round. Grant approvals take place at Foundation board meetings in March, June, September, and December. Generally, the process takes 2-3 months from inquiry to approval.
