YOU’RE JUST A FEW STEPS AWAY FROM SENDING US YOUR PROPOSAL.
We look forward to seeing your ideas for making great things happen for children and young people. Just click the link below and you’ll be directed to our online application portal. Please note: We recently moved to a new grantmaking system. All grantseekers, including those of you who sent us a proposal in the past, will need to create a new account. Once you’ve done that, you can continue with your proposal.
Our online portal is designed to walk you through the application process. Certain questions will have brief explanations to help you understand the information we’re seeking. It will also ask you what you’re requesting an investment for:
- A program or service
- Operating support
- Constructing or remodeling a facility (NOTE TO GRANTSEEKER: The present economic environment has created challenges for many organizations, foundations included. Like other funders, we’re prioritizing our grantmaking based on our mission and current commitments. We wish to be respectful of the time and effort you devote to a proposal. So before you begin, we want to make you aware of our limited capacity to invest in new capital projects.)
- Growing your organization’s capacity
- Engaging young people in philanthropy
To help us better understand your proposal and your organization, please be ready to provide the following financial documents: your project budget; your organization’s most recently completed fiscal-year financials (budget versus actual); and your organization’s most recent monthly financials (budget versus actual). These documents can be uploaded via our online application. You won’t be able to finish your application until those documents have been provided.
Of course, we’re happy to help if you still have questions about our application process. Please call us at 260-347-1278, or email our grants associate, Nan Meyer, at email@example.com.
