How to Apply for Funding

Competitive applications to our General Fund and Field of Interest funds must be submitted through our online grant portal system, Foundant. Access to the system is available by clicking the ‘Applicant and Grantee Login’ button below. There is also a link to login to the system in the upper right-hand corner of our website homepage. If your organization has never applied before, you will need to set up both an organizational profile and a user login. If your organization already has a profile in the system, a login will need to be created for you.

Before beginning an application, you must contact our program director Jamie Schloegel to discuss your request. She will qualify your organization as eligible to apply, determine if your request aligns with a fund’s granting priorities, confirm access to the online portal, and provide an access code for the correct application form. It is best to contact Jamie well in advance of a deadline (she is only available weekdays, and work parts-time); last minute requests can often not be met. It is the program director’s role to help applicants submit the best proposal possible, so never hesitate to reach out with any questions.
