All grant requests must be submitted online via our grantee portal (Foundant). Requests sent via USPS or email will not be considered. We have three grant cycles per year: Spring, Fall and Winter. The grant application is open for submissions one month prior to the grant deadline.
When the determination process has been completed, all applicants will be advised of their proposal results. This may take 2-3 months from the deadline. A grant agreement will be included in the notification to grant recipients.
Organizations receiving a grant have the responsibility of reporting on the use of the funds using the follow up Grant Report via our grantee portal.
USING THE GRANTEE PORTAL
Applying organizations need an account in our grantee portal. If your organization is applying for the first time, you will need to create a new organization account. If your organization has applied for a grant in the past, please do not create a new account. If you think that you or someone at your organization has already registered in the system, do not create a new account. Please contact us to retrieve or update your login information.
Creating Your Online Account
All applicants are required to create an account. We suggest creating your account well in advance of the grant deadline.
At the time of registration, you are required to enter the following information:
A username that is an email address
Your contact information
Your organization’s information, including the EIN/Tax ID number
Contact information for the organization’s Executive Officer
Once your account is set up, your account dashboard is displayed on screen every time you log in. From the dashboard, you can do the following:
Edit your contact information
Begin the application process
Access application drafts and submitted applications
View details and complete the report process for grant awards
A user account can only be connected to one organization at a time.
The system allows an application to be saved as a draft. This draft can be worked on and edited numerous times before submitting the final application for review.
Each account maintains a record of the application history that the applicant can access at any time.
Once a grant is awarded, the system allows grantees an easy way to see the status of their grant, check due dates, and submit electronic grant reports directly from their account.
