The Fall grant cycle will be made up of exclusively Foundation-Initiated grants, which are awarded to organizations identified by Trustees of the Foundation. These grants will typically be somewhat larger in size and may also be multi-year grants. Applications for Foundation-Initiated grants are accepted only at the invitation of the Trustees.
The Spring grant cycle will be made up of Competitive grants which are awarded following the open application period, which begins on April 1st and closes on April 30th each year. The deadline for submitting Competitive Grant Applications is 4/30. The annual Trustees meeting for the final decisions on awarding Competitive Grants takes place in late May/early June, and all final grants are announced by the end of June.
