Preliminary Application

Preliminary Applications have three parts:

Full Proposal

The Trust will notify applicants about how to proceed once a preliminary application has been received. Depending on the previous history with the Trust, applicants whose programs meet the criteria of the Trust will be asked to conduct a face to face meeting with the Trust or a phone conference. After this meeting, the staff will notify applicants when there is an interest in exploring the grant request further, and a full proposal will be requested. Full proposals should be completed via our secure online application process. Please only include materials requested by the Trust. Applicants must have a completed profile on GivingMatters™ by the full proposal deadline.
