What is the timing of your grant cycles, and what is the deadline for proposal submission? Overall, how long does it take to receive a grant?

The Foundation has two grant cycles per year—one in the spring around late April/early May, and one in the fall, usually in late October. When organizations are invited to submit a proposal to the Foundation, our staff makes arrangements with each of them individually to schedule a date for proposal submission that will work for both parties’ timelines.

Because our staff is in continual communication with potential grantees, the timing for receiving a grant can be anywhere from 6 months to a year from initial contact.
