You may submit an application for our Collections-Related Grants on our grant portal linked below. Please keep in mind that the Foundation prefers 12 months’ notice before the start of a project.
Organizations are invited to apply for Collections-Related Grants during three yearly application cycles in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. We have also condensed our previous two-step LOI and full proposal process into a single application stage. Please note that only our Collections-Related Grants are available for open submission; all other grant opportunities are currently by invitation only. As we are continuing to revise and develop all our grant programs, we encourage you to check back on our website frequently for news and updates.
The Summer deadline for applications will be August 1, 2023. The deadline for the following Fall cycle will be November 1, 2023, and the deadline for the next Spring cycle will be March 1, 2024. We are a small team and do our best to reply to grants inquiries in a timely manner. If more than a month has elapsed after the deadline, don’t hesitate to reach out to us for an update.
