Applying for a Grant

Applications for all competitive grants – including Teacher Mini-Grants – are only accepted through our online application system, Submittable. Please review our Grant Guidelines before starting your application.

Please note – Submittable is a new system for the Foundation starting June 2018.  All grant applicants will need to create a new account.

PLEASE NOTE – if you need to submit a final report for a grant you were awarded using the eGrant system, use this link:

Application Process

Choose a login name and password to create your user account in Submittable. Whenever possible, utilize a general email, rather than an email tied to an individual within your organization – e.g.

Grant Application
The last step of the process is submission of your detailed proposal, or grant application, for review by our volunteer Grant Review Committees and staff members. All final decisions are made by our Board of Trustees.

Final Grant Report
If your program is supported with a grant, you will be required to submit a final grant report to share the impact of your project.
