Our Process

We use a paperless two-step application process for all of our grants.  All eligible requests for funding are evaluated by the Foundation's Granting Committee.

The Acts of Grace Foundation has one primary granting cycle each year. A second granting cycle may be held at the discretion of the Granting Committee.


Within each granting cycle, Acts of Grace has a two-stage application process. At each stage, our Granting Committee evaluates all applications for alignment with the Foundation and its criteria and determines which projects will move forward and, ultimately, receive funding. 

  • Stage 1: Letter of Inquiry (LOI) - overview of your organization, the project and the need
  • Stage 2: Application & Interview  - successful LOIs only

LOIs are only accepted during the following periods.

  • Cycle 1: January 2 - 31
  • Cycle 2: July 2 - 31 (at the discretion of the Granting Committee)  

Each granting cycle lasts six (6) months and granting decisions are made in June (Cycle 1) and in December (Cycle 2).


Our entire application process is paperless and uses our online Grant Management System.


The Acts of Grace Foundation does not accept Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) by mail or email.
