Apply for a Grant

1. Register with SCCF

This will get you in our system and on our radar. You can register in one of two ways:

  • (Recommended) A short version of the registration form that works in tandem with your Guidestar profile (which we recommend you claim and update if you have not). That form is at this link.

  • A longer version if you do not wish to use Guidestar is at this link.

In either case, be sure to gather all the materials you need before filling out the form. Neither allow for drafts.

2. Attend a Grant Info Session 

These are held before each grant round. They last for about an hour and are held in person and virtually. You need to attend one session within the calendar year of your application.

3. Apply

View the current Connect for Lasting Imact Grant Cycle Letter of Intent application at this link. You will need to describe your project in detail, including budget. You will also need to provide some other info about your organization. For a detailed list of information required, click here.

4. Get funds

Grants are competitive! If you are awarded a grant, you will typically hear within two months of the deadline for the application. Whether or not you are awarded a grant, we encourage you to attend Celebrations of the grant in April and November and try again. 

5. Submit Grant Reports 

To complete your grant program, you will submit a 6-Month Grant Report to let us know about the progress that you've made. At the end of your project, and before you can apply again, you will submit a Final Grant Report.

6. Apply Again!
