Meta charity funding circle application
We have a short application process that can get your application on the radar of a number of funders. In some cases that will be all the information they need, in other cases a specific funder might reach out for more information, or to invite you to a deeper process. Our goal is to make our application process quick and easy, usually just requiring information that a project has already created. Sadly, we can not respond to specific questions or give feedback on the applications, and will only contact those that seem like a good fit. Leave all optional fields empty if they do not apply to you (do not write "N/A"). We will have a higher bar and a longer process for larger grant sizes.

If your project does not have a name, write a 1-6 word tagline to help funders understand your project at a glance, e.g. "Philanthropic advising in Wakanda"

Full name of the person corresponding with potential donors
E-mail for point of contact
