We’ve made every attempt to streamline the application process to make it as easy as possible for individuals to apply and for large organizations to source necessary resources. At the same time, the application process is also designed to help us get to know you, the applicant, and conduct judicious consideration of all applications before distributing funds.

  2. Review the grant application guidelines.
  3. Know the deadlines and procedures.
  4. Read the conditions.
