The Foundation only accepts and responds to invited proposals. Foundation staff reviews proposals on a rolling basis. Once a complete proposal is submitted via the Grants Portal, a decision can usually be made within three months, and the applying organization is notified promptly at that time.
When invited to submit a proposal, your Program Officer at the Foundation will specify which guidelines should be used for your proposal.
You may be required to use one or more of the templates below to submit financial information with your grant proposal. A Project Budget Template may be required for capacity building, planning, policy & advocacy, program & project support, research & evaluation, or scaling proposals; your Program Officer will advise you as to whether it is necessary and which template to use. The Financial Analysis Template is required for all capital, core support, and scaling proposals; and it may be required under other circumstances at your Program Officer’s discretion.
Please refer to your Grant Agreement for reporting requirements and schedule.

Organizational resilience is the capacity of an organization to respond effectively to change, to bounce back from unexpected shifts, to adapt successfully to new and unforeseen conditions and circumstances, and even to seize opportunity.
