Submitting a Grant Request

When is the deadline?

The Trust considers grant requests once per year. Requests must be received or postmarked by October 1st each year.

In 2020 grants were limited to general operating support for organizations that have received at least two Morton-Kelly grants in the past five years. The Trustees have not yet determined whether the 2021 grant cycle will be similar or whether the Trust will revert to its typical project-based funding approach. Please check back at this page after May for more information on 2021 grants.

Please note that the Trust’s grants are competitive – we generally receive many more proposals than our resources allow us to fund.

How will I learn about the directors’ decisions?

Typically, the directors review all requests in November and decision letters are sent before the end of December of each year.

Is there someone to contact if I have questions?

Yes! Feel free to contact Admninistrative Trustee Erik Jorgensen by e-mail if you have questions or need guidance.

We have moved to an on-line grant application. You will need to create an account for your organization in our system, and between July 1 and October 1 2020 you will be able to apply in what we have designed to be a simple process. The application and registration are available here.
