Grant Application preview 1
February 14, 2020

We are just over two weeks away from rolling out our new grant application. Applicants will definitely see a difference. If you are considering applying to the Foundation we want to provide two points of guidance that will help you:

  • Users will need a new login. Our new grant management system and grant application is foundationConnect. For our grantees this means that your old login-in credentials will no longer work. On March 2nd we will roll out a new portal website. Every grantee will need to need to register the first time they come to the portal. Registering will involve providing basic organization and contact information. After registering, grantees will receive an email confirming that they are set up as a user. Once a grantee receives this email they can return to the portal and login with their credentials.
  • The grant application will have new and enhanced features. We have received inquiries from grantees about what the new format of the application will be. Below is a PDF document that outlines the major sections of the application and what will be required in each section. There are some notable differences from our previous application: 1) We are trying out a project budget template. This template is for both revenue and expenses. 2) Grantees will be able to submit the grant metrics that they would like to report on. These metrics will be evaluated, and we will provide feedback on them.

Come back to our website on February 21st to read more about the application. We will share our thinking behind the application format and questions, and our desire for a clear narrative to come through the application that conveys the grantee’s story.
