The foundation will accept proposal submissions in the Middle School Youth Success program area for consideration three times per year.  Applications are due at 5 p.m. Pacific time on the last day of the submission period. Please note that both Safety Net and K-8 Scholarship applications are accepted by invitation only. The open application periods in 2020 are as follows:

A “New Proposal” icon will only appear in the grants portal throughout the submission period. The renewal application can only be accessed by completing the grant report and clicking the yellow highlighted link at the bottom of the grant report page. Please review the Application Procedures page to be sure you are completing the correct application. 

In preparation for submitting your application, we encourage you to compose the proposal in Microsoft Word and once it is ready, copy and paste content directly in to the foundation’s online application.

Please revisit the foundation’s website regularly as submission dates may need to shift for unforeseen circumstances.
