Step One: Submit your Initial Inquiry.
This step must be completed and approved prior to Applying for a Grant (Step 2).
Before submitting a formal proposal we ask that organizations submit an Initial Inquiry to provide an overview of the request. If The Eamon Foundation believes that a formal proposal should be submitted, we will contact you and recommend that you proceed to Step 2 of the process.
This is an informal review process only and is not an actual application for a grant.
Step Two: Apply For Grant
Do not complete this step until your Initial Inquiry (Step One) has been approved.
Assuming that your Initial Inquiry has been approved, you may now proceed to Step 2, and Apply for a Grant. In order to do this please complete our Online Grant Application. You will also need to upload relevant documents, so please make sure they are available. These documents are:
- The advance or definitive IRS determination letters indicating 501(c) (3) tax-exempt status.
- Copies of the most recent IRS 990.
The Eamon Foundation’s review process takes approximately four months, after the submission of the formal proposal, to approve or deny the request. During the review process, the foundation may request additional information, a conference call, or a program visit. If approved through the review process, the proposal is submitted to the foundation’s board of directors for consideration. The applicant will be notified within three weeks of the board’s decision. If the grant is approved, recipients will be instructed as to reporting requirements.
