We have an open grant cycle (you do not need to be invited to apply).
We review grant applications twice a year, spring and fall.
We support a wide range of programs. We have three strategies that help to narrow down program type. Please see Our approach page for more information. You can expect about 8-10 weeks from grant deadline to funding.

*We will ask for a grant report. Depending on the length of the program will determine the length and frequency of the report.
*We have two goals for the grant report
*We are happy to accept other reports that describe the program in more depth. For example, if the Picard Center has put together a report we will accept it in place of our report.
At this time, we are taking some time to do some strategic planning. We not are accepting applications right now. My hope is that we will announce in April or May our updated process. Thanks
