The Foundation’s online grant application follows the Colorado Common Grant Application (CGA) format. Please review all of their eligibility requirements & guidelines, funding areas & restrictions, and past grants before starting an application. They encourage you to call, email or submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) if you have any questions.
Applications must be submitted online (preferred) or received in their office by 5 p.m. on the deadline date. Faxed or emailed applications are not accepted. If a deadline falls on a weekend, the application is due the preceding Friday.
Due to the large volume of grant applications they receive, their review process takes about four months. Your application will be assigned to one of their staff members for review. They will contact you if they have any questions, need additional information or to schedule a site visit. They will communicate the board’s decision about your proposal by mail-in late-May or late-November, depending upon the grant cycle in which you’ve applied.
