HOW TO APPLY
Thank you to the nonprofits who attended our recent applicant information sessions during which we covered our grant calendar, funding priorities, and eligibility criteria, as well a Q&A session. We also heard from previous applicants who received a grant. Replays of both sessions are available below.
COMPLETE ELIGIBILITY FORM
Deadline for submitting the Eligibility Form was May 13th, 2022. Eligible applicants are invited to submit an application form that is due on June 1st, 2022.
Approved applicants will be asked to complete the grant application form via Submittable.com, where applicants will be asked to create a user account before being prompted to complete the Eligibility Form.

Please see below to download our Application Information Packet and Grant FAQs.
Eligible nonprofits may apply for grant funding in one of five focus areas by our June 1st deadline.
Focus Area Committees (FACs), comprised of members, evaluate grant applications. After a thorough analysis and financial review, semifinalists are selected and site visits are scheduled.
FACs select finalists to present at the Annual Membership Meeting in November, where:
- Each member casts a single (and equal) vote for a nonprofit of her choice.
- The grant recipient(s) is determined by majority vote and announced at the close of the meeting.
