Announcement Regarding our Spring Funding Cycle:


Please be informed that the Foundation has decided to suspend its standard grantmaking operations for the upcoming cycle so that we may implement a new, online submission process. We expect to resume regular activities in early fall and encourage you to visit our website at the end of August to review our funding cycles, dates, and new application procedures.

Message from Fred Bay, President and CEO: We sincerely apologize for these delays, which we understand will for some prove more than an inconvenience. Our regret is tempered with excitement, as this year our board and staff continue to deeply engage a strategic review of our grantmaking domains and priorities. We feel confident the new, highly interactive website will facilitate ever more transparent and constructive interactions with the communities we are privileged to serve.
