Grant Application Process


Please note:  Our application and LOI processes are online

Please start by creating an account and submitting a Letter of Interest (LOI) online HERE.  If your LOI is approved, you will be invited to submit a full Application in the same account.

Current grantees also need to create an account and submit a brief LOI in the online system in order to submit reports and request grant renewals

Please read through our Evaluation Criteria before contacting us to ensure that your request fits our strategic directions.

Our deadlines are:

  • Environmental Justice Grants:
    • LOI due February 15, Application due March 15
  • Social Justice and Education Grants:
    • note: The Foundation will consider grant applications on an invitation-only basis for 2018, with a focus on those organizations that received a first or second year grant in 2017.

We prefer to do a site visit before voting on a proposal.
