Prepare A Strong Proposal
A strong proposal is ready for review. It should be well beyond the conceptual stage, and have a clear plan for the project, timeline and budget. The proposal should present defined benefits or outcomes and describe why your community supports your goal. Involvement of your Board with cash, in-kind contributions and a community campaign are some indicators of a proposal being ready. As appropriate, community participation is a primary factor in a proposal being ready. We like to see that (any additional needed) fundraising is significantly underway with your traditional supporters, local businesses, key donors and other foundations.
After an initial review of a proposal by our staff, on-site visits and follow-up communications may be appropriate. Large requests are reviewed by our Board of Directors and / or special committee which normally meets monthly. Smaller requests are reviewed and a funding determination is made by senior Foundation staff. Proposals receive a response regarding the outcome of the review or next steps, if any, usually within four to six weeks. Smaller grants (US $5,000 or less) typically can be decided in about three weeks.
