Grant Application Deadlines

We do not have grant application deadlines. Instead, we ask that you send your proposal at least 90 days before you need a response from our board. This gives us time to research and consider your proposal and gets you an answer on the timeline of your choice.

How does that work?

Here’s an example: If you are planning a summer camp for children that begins on June 22 and you would like to seek Dekko Foundation support to pay for some of the materials, then you will want to back up at least 90 days from when you need to order your materials. An even better plan would be to send your grant proposal in the fall as soon as you’ve decided to hold the camp the next year. That way you’ll know, during the winter months, whether or not we’ve accepted your proposal and you can make your plans and market your camp from there.

Please be advised that, in the past, our board of directors has decided not to invest in projects that are already underway, or completed, and are seeking reimbursement.
