Their Focus Areas
They establish core areas to support, and these focus areas are reviewed periodically. Below are their current focus areas.
They generally recommend to seek funding below $50k to new applicants, however, there is no strict guidelines on this.
Closing dates and rounds
They are open to receiving applications all throughout the year. However, please note that decisions on applications will be decided by the Fund’s board, which meets four times a year. If your application advances to formal application submission, you will be notified of the deadline so your application can be processed in a timely manner for consideration at the next upcoming board meeting.
