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.

For 2020 only, grants will be limited to general operating support for organizations that have received at least two Morton-Kelly grants in the past five years. Requests for this cycle will be accepted after August 17.

All requests will be acknowledged by e-mail upon receipt. 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?

Apply for a grant here:

We have moved to an on-line grant application. You will need to create an account for your organization in our system, and between August 17 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.
