The Bellwether Foundation open grant cycle runs from the first week of March to May 15 for Preliminary Applications and until July 31 for invitation-only Detailed Applications. Please complete the questions below and submit. The Bellwether Foundation has created a two-step grant application process.
The first step is this Preliminary Application. It should take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. Once submitted, the Preliminary Application will be reviewed and you will be contacted via email to let you know that your information was received.
You should complete and submit your Preliminary Application within 30 days of beginning the application.
The Bellwether Foundation will review your Preliminary Grant Request and may request a Detailed Grant Application from your organization. Expect this decision, sent via email, about 3 weeks after the Preliminary Grant Request has been submitted. The Detailed Grant Application will give your organization an opportunity to provide more information about the potential grant.
Preliminary applications will be accepted through May 15, 2020.
The Bellwether Foundation will consider one application per organization during a grant cycle. For example, two projects from different departments of an organization will not be considered during the same year.
The Bellwether Foundation strives to make decisions promptly. If you have any questions in the interim, please contact The Bellwether Foundation directly at email@example.com.
