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 2023 granting cycle is now closed and we are not accepting applications. LOIs submitted are being reviewed for funding decisions in June 2023. Charities selected for phase 2 of the application process will be contacted shortly. The next granting cycle will open in 2024.

The Acts of Grace Foundation has one primary granting cycle each year, which lasts 6 months. 

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 & Site Visit  - successful LOIs only, Site Visits are facilitated remotely using web-based platform

LOIs are only accepted in January/February of each year.  Granting decisions are made annually in June. Specific dates for each granting cycle and LOI submission vary slightly from year to year. Dates are posted to the Foundation's website and social media prior to the opening of the granting cycle.

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.

A second granting cycle may be held at the discretion of the Granting Committee. Should a second granting cycle open, all details will be posted on the Acts of Grace website.
