Applications are accepted on a quarterly basis. Submission deadlines are:
August 31st, 2023
November 30th, 2023
February 28th, 2024
All applicants must submit their application and project budget through Submittable. If approved, the grantee applicant will be notified of funding within 30 days of the submission deadline. Grant awards may take up to 6 weeks to process. Please plan the start of your program at least 2 months after the submission deadline to allow for the interview process, funding decisions, and fund processing.
Grant amount will not exceed $10,000 and amount awarded will be determined by a panel application review and interview process based on funds available. The project must be completed within one year of receiving the grant. Project timelines may be shorter depending on the project proposal.
Applicants may be awarded up to two grants per fiscal year for separate, unrelated projects. Applicants can only have one active grant at a time. No concurrent funding is allowed.
During the grant period, you will be asked to participate in a conversational check-in with the San Francisco Foundation to learn more about your program accomplishments. Grantees are required to provide photo and/or video documentation of the project, as well as the completion of a final survey report.
