All Inquiry Letters are reviewed by Foundation staff and Trustees. In some cases, the Foundation may request additional information. The Foundation will follow up with you regarding your organization’s eligibility to continue with the process. If there is not a fit with the Foundation’s current priorities, organizations will be notified in writing.
Please note: The Trustees ask that Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) be submitted for review only through the link provided on this page (active mid-December and mid-June). We do not accept LOIs via email. No LOIs will be accepted after the deadline has passed.

Arts Education proposals are accepted By Invitation Only. See Areas of Interest for more information.
Meeting: If the Letter of Inquiry is approved, Foundation staff will contact the organization to schedule a meeting. We encourage prospective grantees to include up to three representatives, preferably with leadership from both the staff and board. The meeting is an opportunity for the Foundation to ask questions and better understand the needs of the organization.
Submission of Grant Application: Following the meeting, Foundation staff will recommend to the organization whether to submit a formal grant application. A Grant Applicant Questionnaire, which outlines the information and materials that should be submitted with the proposal, will be provided. Applicants will be notified in writing of the Board’s decision following the Board Meeting.
