Phase I Application



For the December grant cycle, Phase I applications must be submitted online no later than May 1, 4:30pm (PT). For the June grant cycle, the online submission deadline is no later than November 1, 4:30pm (PT). If a deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the deadline is 4:30pm (PT) on the following Monday. Applicants will not be able to submit Phase I applications after the deadline. We appreciate early submissions.  For more information about deadlines, please see our Grant Cycle Timeline.


Applicants will receive an email receipt confirming an application has been submitted and received.  The Foundation will formally acknowledge eligibility of Phase I applications within four weeks. Completed applications are then carefully reviewed and the Foundation will notify those applicants that are invited to submit a Phase II proposal. No inquiries regarding applications will be entertained in the interim.


The Foundation will only consider applications that are complete and contain all the requirements listed in the Phase I application, along with all the required attachments.

Items you will need to complete in order to submit a Phase I application online:

*All tax exempt documentation and audited financial statements must be in the same, current and full name of the qualifying organization.
