GHF will accept Letters of Intent (LOIs) from eligible organizations from early December – late January each year (refer to Timeline on Grants page). If an organization advances beyond the LOI, a full application will be due late March/early April of that year. Awards are distributed the following June.
July 1-June 30.
Minimum is $10,000; maximum is $50,000. At its discretion, the GHF Grants Committee may elect to award funding at a level above the maximum threshold. Note: funding requests to GHF cannot exceed 25% of an organization’s total operations.
As of 2019, GHF asks that all LOI applicants provide your organization’s most recent audit if you have one. Applicants requesting $25,000-$50,000 are required to submit an audit. However, applicants requesting less than $25,000 that have not commissioned an audit may submit a CPA-prepared financial statement review.
