How To Apply

An organization seeking funding from the Bennett Family Foundation should first send us an initial proposal or inquiry using this form on our site. This will give us enough information to decide whether your program fits with the current focus of our grant making, before you spend time writing a formal grant proposal

The online form asks you for:

  • Name, URL and a brief description of your organization
  • Contact information
  • Overview of the specific project, if any, for which you seek funding
  • The amount requested, if known at the time of inquiry

If we’re interested, we’ll follow up with you. We have no full-time staff, and we cannot answer every inquiry beyond the automated confirmation of receipt.

Initial proposals may be submitted at any time. Grants are generally distributed twice yearly, in May and November. Submit your inquiries no later than April 1 for us to consider in the Spring, and by October 1 for the Fall.
