Apply for a Grant

The Public Welfare Foundation has a two-step application process that includes both a letter of inquiry (LOI) and a full proposal. We invite full proposals after reviewing letters of inquiry. We only consider full proposals we have invited. We only fund works that fits within our program guidelines.
