Please follow these steps:

Submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) through the grant management software. You may save your work within the online portal and return at any time to complete. Once submitted, you will receive a confirmation email.
If invited to apply, you will be emailed an invitation code to submit a full grant proposal for review by the board of directors.
Once invited, provide a letter signed by the Executive Director or CEO of your organization and to provide your non-profit Tax ID number.
Recipients of the Names Family Foundation Grants must submit a grant report to the Foundation within six months of the use of funds or completion of the project. For Capital campaigns, status updates must be submitted every six months until the project is completed.

The grant report must describe the use of the funds and must provide an evaluation of the success of the project. Failure to comply will disqualify the organization from future requests.
If your LOI is declined, you will be notified by email. For more information, please email
