Using the Online Grant System

Once you’ve confirmed that your project fits within the guidelines, you can use the Initiative Foundation’s online grant system to create an account, complete an eligibility quiz, submit inquiries and proposals, review your application history and submit grant reports.

To use the system, choose Start Application or Account Login.

Here are Grant Guidelines that articulate grant priorities, deadlines, and process details.

Open this document to preview the grant questions.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to prepare answers in a separate Word or Google document so answers can be efficiently copied into the application system and to avoid losing answers if the system times out before the submission is completed.

Grant Deadline: Extended to April 24th!!

Click Start Application to create an account and submit your first inquiry or to start a new inquiry.

Click Account Login to return to an existing inquiry/proposal, access application history or submit a grant report.
