In today’s philanthropic landscape, every funder has their own way of doing business – which we recognize is a challenge. Whether you are writing your first grant proposal or you are an experienced professional, we hope the guidance below will help you put together a successful application.

How to Apply

We require an online application for all grant programs. The first time an organization applies to the Foundation through our online application system, it creates an organization account to use for each application going forward. If this your first time applying online, please create a new account.

Visit our How to Apply page for more details on how to navigate our online application portal.


All of our applications are online. Your materials, including narrative, budgets, audits, progress reports, board lists and other attachments will need to be uploaded to our web portal.

All applications for competitive grant programs require some mix of supporting materials. In addition to your narrative responses, your application may also ask for budgets, audits, reporting documents and/or board lists. Please refer to your specific application to determine which forms are needed.

Form Templates

Select the required form, save to your computer, complete and then upload the final document to the corresponding spot in your application. Please be sure to format the document correctly to ensure optimal uploads.

*Please note any application asking for an organizational budget allows you to upload your own organizational budget in whichever form you use. There is no required template.
