Apply for funding

Some notes about our process:

  • Please be sure your proposal is aligned with our mission. To learn more about how we think about the mission, be sure to read our blog.

  • If you are an existing grantee, there's no need to re-apply here. Instead, make note of your needs in the grantee portal.

  • While our primary focus is the United States, we make exceptions for compelling international projects that have the potential to replicate or spill over into the United States.

  • We process grant applications on a quarterly basis (typically, at the end of each calendar quarter). At most, expect a 4-month turnaround.

  • Most of our grants are for serious, dedicated full-time efforts of 6 months or more (and usually, multi-year efforts). For smaller grants, we encourage you to reach out to an organization which specializes in small seed grants.

  • If you like our approach but aren't sure how you best fit in, consider looking at our wishlist projects. Or, reach out and talk to us.

All set, ready to apply?
