The Foundation will not be issuing an open Request for Proposals (RFP) in 2013. Specific guidelines are posted on the Foundation’s website for open RFPs.
In general, we do not accept unsolicited proposals. However, if, after reviewing our logic model and our RFP for the Health Care Access and Health Justice Initiative, you think your work is a fit with our advocacy funding strategy, please send a brief email describing your work, noting the community you are engaging and the specific legislative and/or institutional change(s) you seek to implement. Contact Ria Pugeda, Program Officer at email@example.com.
Most grants range from $25,000 to $35,000 with an upper limit of $50,000.
Grant awards are generally made for one year, but groups may reapply for continued support. Under special circumstances (e.g., “matching funding” or “exceptional timing” requirements), we will consider multi-year grants of up to three years.
We predominantly fund community-based, nonprofit organizations that are located in the neighborhoods they serve.
We fund solely in the metropolitan Washington DC area, which consists of the District, Maryland (Prince George’s County and Montgomery County), and Northern Virginia.
On occasion we do fund national organizations that partner closely with local community-based organizations. In these cases, we generally encourage the local community-based organizations to be the applicant.
The Foundation Center provides grant writing workshops and technical assistance to nonprofit groups. In addition to submitting proposals, we encourage applicants to submit a logic model, which is a program design, implementation, and evaluation tool. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation Logic Model Development Guide provides information on logic models.
