How to Apply

Prospective and returning applicants will begin the process by completing an online eligibility survey. If an organization is found to be eligible, they will be provided with an online link to a letter of inquiry submission form.  This form will provide the Foundation with concise information about the organization, as well as outlining the aims and specific needs of the grant request.

If upon review of the letter of inquiry, the grant request is found to be a fit with the Foundation’s mission and funding priorities, the applicant will be provided with an application along with an invitation to apply.

If you have any additional questions regarding the Foundation's letter of inquiry or grant application process you are welcome to contact Sarah Bicknell, Grants Manager or Jeffrey Smith, Executive Director at 310-664-1358.
