Providing step-by-step directions to help you apply for a grant…
Preliminary On-line Grant Proposal, Stage 1
Please take the time to become familiar with our current areas of interest prior to applying for a grant. After reviewing the Waitt Foundation Grant Guidelines and Grantee Requirements, your next step in the application process is to complete an online Preliminary Grant Request. A staff member will review your submission and respond within six to eight weeks. All applications must be submitted via our website for consideration.
Required Documents: You must attach the following items to be considered for a Waitt Foundation grant. Applications without this information will not be considered.
- Budget specifically related to project. A sample format is provided below.
- U.S. Applicants - Proof of non-profit 501(c)(3) tax status as determined by the IRS.
- International Applicants - Proof of public charitable status equivalent under U.S. tax laws.
Additional Documents: Please feel free to attach additional supporting documentation related specifically to your project proposal.
Please Note: Preliminary Grant Requests are accepted year-round and must be submitted via our website.
Full On-line Grant Proposal, Stage 2
Should it be determined that your project may align with the foundation’s initiatives, interests and current giving guidelines, you will be invited to submit a full grant proposal for further evaluation and consideration. Additionally, we may request an informal meeting for further evaluation.
Typically, our grant cycle is annual but we accept applications on a rolling basis.
Please note that the foundation staff may request additional documentation and information, phone conversations, or in-person meetings during the application process of submitting a Full Proposal.
