April Grant Cycle:(Deadline: January 2)
Applications must be submitted by January 2 for consideration in the April Grant Cycle. Grant notifications will be sent out by the end of April
October Grant Cycle:(Deadline: July 2)
Applications must be submitted by July 2 for consideration in the October Grant Cycle. Grant notifications will be sent out by the end of October.
If you feel that your organization and project align with ours, the next step is to fill out our online form to request an account in our Grant Application Portal. You can find this on the login page of our Grant Application Portal. You will receive a notification via email when your account is approved or declined. If your account is declined, this means that your organization does not fall within our funding priorities and not likely to receive funds. If your account is approved, please follow the steps outlined in the notification email to set up your online account.
Once your account is set up, it is now time to reach out to Foundation staff to for an introductory meeting. We want to get to know you! We prefer to meet with senior organizational leaders and those who are directly involved in the project for which you are seeking funding. Please email us at [email protected] to request a meeting.
Now that your request for an account has been approved and you have met with Foundation staff, you are ready to start working on a grant proposal. Foundation staff are standing by ready to help answer questions and troubleshoot any issues that arise. However, we are not able to review proposals and provide feedback prior to the submission date. Remember to include supporting materials and prayer requests!
After each deadline, proposals go through a three-tiered review process. During this time, Foundation staff may reach out to you for additional information. We are not able to give updates on the status of your proposal until our full review process is complete. As a reminder, if you submit your proposal by the January 2 deadline, you will receive a notification by the end of April. If you submit your proposal by the July 2 deadline, you will receive a notification by the end of October.
During the review process, we invite you to pray with us and for us as we evaluate each proposal. We pray for every organization and proposal that is submitted. Please pray for us as we seek wisdom and God’s guidance in our decision making.
