If, after reviewing the Grant Guidelines, you have sufficient reason to believe that the Foundation’s interest areas and funding preferences are compatible with the need of your organization, send a letter of inquiry to the Grants Administrator. If you need further clarification or guidance, please feel free to call the Foundation.
The letter should include the mission of your organization, a brief description of its history and current programming, the operating budget, an explanation of your need for support, including the project budget, the amount you are requesting, and other funding sources under consideration or already secured.
The Foundation is unable to accept electronically submitted letters of inquiry and grant requests, either by fax or via e-mail. Inquiry and request letters must be on agency letterhead and signed by the executive director, president or appropriate Board representative.
Letters of Inquiry should be directed to:
