The Waitt Foundation has a specific focus on Ocean Conservation. After reviewing our website and becoming familiar with our areas of interest, your next step in the application process is to complete an online Grant Request. The ROC Grants Committee will review your submission which occurs on a monthly rolling basis. All applications must be submitted via our website for consideration as we do not accept proposals by e-mail, mail, or fax.
Required Documents: You must attach the following items to be considered for a Waitt Foundation ROC grant. Applications without this information will not be considered.
– Budget: Project specific. A sample format is provided below.
– Project Timeline: For the life of the project to be funded.
– 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.
Please feel free to attach additional supporting documentation related specifically to your project proposal.
We accept applications on a rolling basis, so there is no deadline.
Please note that the foundation staff may request additional documentation and information, phone conversations, or in-person meetings during the application review process.
