PROPOSAL GUIDELINES

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ONLY CONSIDER GRANTS FOR ORGANIZATIONS ON AN EVERY OTHER YEAR BASIS. IF YOU RECEIVED A GRANT IN 2020, YOU WILL NEED TO WAIT TO REAPPLY IN 2022.

To submit your proposal letter:

1) Use the form provided in the link below.

2) Your proposal text should not be longer than two pages (approximately 1000 words). The proposal should be a brief and clear description of the proposed project, stating exactly how the SEF grant money will be spent, including a time frame for the project. PLEASE DO make a point to briefly illustrate how your project will address the cyclical nature of poverty.

3) Please include a copy of your 501 (c) (3) designation in PDF format.

 

Please do not send photos, staff resumes, organizational budgets, or anything but the information asked for above. If your organization receives a grant application, we will contact you and additional information will be requested at that time.

 

We may request a site visit but please keep in mind this does not mean that your organization will receive a grant or has a higher priority over other organizations that have applied for funding.

May 28: Proposal letters to SEF must be submitted on or before this date.

 

July 19: Those organizations whose proposals meet current funding priorities will receive grant application forms by this date.

 

September 30: Those organizations that receive grant applications must have the application submitted by this date.

 

November 22: Those groups who have been selected to receive a grant will be notified by this date.
