The Board of Directors meets quarterly to consider requests for grants. These meetings are held in February, May, August and November.
We must receive your proposal by 5 p.m. on the deadline date in order to review it at the corresponding board meeting. In the event that a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, applications may be submitted by 5 p.m. on the following business day.
Although the Board of Directors considers requests for grants on a quarterly basis, as outlined, organizations can submit a full proposal or letter of inquiry at any time. Our Program Officers welcome the opportunity to answer questions or provide additional guidance through phone calls or e-mails.
If you do not receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your proposal within one week, please contact the Foundation at 312-580-0310 to confirm your proposal was received by us.
