Our Annual Cycle application is open for the 2022-23 academic year! The Annual Cycle is intended for requests with budgets ranging from $10,000 to over $300,000, but there are no minimums and maximums vary based on available funds.
Important dates to remember
April 15: First day to submit an LOI
- Every Annual Cycle grant starts with a Letter of Inquiry (LOI), which is an opportunity to simply explain the idea (no need to justify it or cite sources; less is more). Requests are reviewed on a rolling basis.
- Early LOI entries (before September 15) could have a chance for edit and resubmission.
We encourage you to:
- Plan ahead!
- Visit our grant seekers page to view our grant guidelines.
- Contact our Director of Grants, Amy Bonner, at 434-243-9078 or firstname.lastname@example.org. An idea is more likely to be funded if we have a chance to work with the grant seeker.
