This form is designed to assist you in applying online for a grant from The Meadows Foundation. The Foundation discourages letters of intent and asks that you please submit a complete proposal including all of the information on the online form that you would submit with a hard copy application. Please note that the open-ended fields in the form will expand to accommodate an unlimited number of characters.
You will NOT be able to save your progress on the online form. You may wish to format your information in a word processing program, then "paste" the finished product into this form under the appropriate headings. Please note that your formatting may be altered during the "cut and paste" process, so review your online application carefully before you submit it. Please do not attempt to attach files to this form, as the Foundation cannot guarantee the compatibility of word processing and spreadsheet programs. The entire form must be completed in order for your application to be considered.
You will receive confirmation of receipt of your electronic submission within one week. Applications are generally considered by the Board of Directors within three to four months. Should the Foundation require additional information to process your request, a grants program officer will contact you. Grants staff is available by phone or email to respond to inquiries at any time and may schedule pre-grant interviews with applicants as time permits. After receiving an application, a face-to-face meeting may be scheduled as needed.
While the Foundation accepts grant applications online, it cannot guarantee the confidentiality of information transmitted over the Internet. A printed copy of information that you cannot or do not wish to transmit over the Internet (e.g., organization's current operating budget, audited financial statements, year-to-date financial statements and/or IRS Letter of Tax Exemption) should be mailed to The Meadows Foundation and clearly identified as an addendum to your application.
Online applications are not required. If you prefer, you may submit a proposal in your own format following our grant application guidelines.
