Application Process

If you wish to apply for a grant, you must first complete a brief eligibility quiz. If you meet our basic eligibility requirements, you will then be able to register and submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) via our new grants application portal. The LOI must precede the submission of a full proposal. The van Ameringen Foundation staff will contact those organizations selected to submit a full proposal and schedule a site visit.

NOTE: If you wish to apply for the May 2018 grants cycle, the application portal will only be open for submission from December 1, 2017 to December 19, 2017.

Decisions on grants are made by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, which meets two times each year to consider grant proposals—typically in May and November.
