Our application process is intended for first-time applicants only. If your organization
has previously been awarded a grant from the Change Happens Foundation, please visit our
Current and Past Grantees page.
If you previously submitted a Letter of Inquiry, and it was declined, you may
contact us for further consideration.
Step One: Eligibility
Review our eligibility requirements to determine whether or not
your program meets the the Change Happens Foundation's eligibility criteria. Organizations
whose projects do not meet our eligibility requirements should visit the
Foundation Center, which
provides a searchable database nonprofits can use to develop funding leads.
Step Two: Letter of Inquiry
For grantseekers who meet our eligibility requirements,
the application process begins with a Letter of Inquiry. The Letter of Inquiry is required
to determine whether the Change Happens Foundation’s current interests and budget allow consideration
of the grantseeker’s request. We ask that all applicants complete and submit our
online Letter of Inquiry providing basic organizational and project information.
Step Three: Proposal
If your Letter of Inquiry is favorably reviewed and accepted for further consideration, you will be asked
to submit a formal grant proposal. Please do not submit a proposal without an invitation
to apply. The Foundation will not review unsolicited grant proposals.
