Eligibility Criteria & Selection Guidelines


Submit a letter of inquiry.
All potential grantee partners are required to submit a preliminary letter of inquiry, which may be submitted at any time during the year. We use this letter to determine basic eligibility and fit with our selection criteria. Please note that the form cannot load in some internet browsers. If the form does not load, please try accessing it in Google Chrome.

Wait for confirmation from us—if it’s a good fit, we’ll contact you.
If a letter of inquiry falls within our priorities and selection criteria, we will follow up with the organization to solicit a full proposal. Full proposals are accepted by invitation only.

Do not contact us by phone or by email to ask about the status of your letter of inquiry. Due to the volume of inquiries, we cannot respond individually to those not selected for further consideration.


Complete your paperwork.
If the full proposal is approved, we will issue a letter of agreement to the grantee partner, outlining the terms and conditions of the grant. Grantee partners must submit a progress report after nine months and a final report after twelve months, as detailed in the letter of agreement. We will provide specific guidelines for these reports. Failure to submit a report by the due date may result in ineligibility for future grants.
