How to Apply

Eligible applicants are invited to apply via our online grant application portal.

Our grant application process involves three key steps:

  1. Create an account at our online application portal
  2. Complete a short Expression of Interest
  3. If accepted, submit a Full Application

Submitting an Expression of Interest

To start your grant application journey, create an account at our online application portal. Once your account is ready, complete the online form to verify your eligibility and answer a few short questions about your proposal; this form is known as your Expression of Interest.

After your Expression of Interest is submitted, our Review Committee will assess your responses and in most cases contact you via email within approximately six to eight weeks. This email will indicate whether your application journey has ended, or if you’re invited to submit a full application.

Completing the Full Application

If you’ve been invited to complete your application, log back onto the application portal, answer the application questions, and upload the required supporting documentation:

  • Project budget
  • Financial statements (audited if available)
  • Annual report
  • List of Board of Directors
  • List of major organizational funders

You’ll receive an email with the outcome of your application within approximately ten weeks.

Please note that our Foundation staff may request a meeting or on-site visit as part of the expression of interest or full application review process.
