Eligibility and Selection Criteria Guidelines

The initiative follows a two-step application process. Step One requires the submission of a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) through the link supplied on the "Applying to the Fund" page. After all LOIs are received, FFCF will contact those applicants who are most competitive, and invite them to complete Step Two — the submission of a full proposal. At this time the fund can't give feedback for the LOIs that don't move forward.

Grants are awarded against a set of specific goals and outcomes. Proposals are evaluated using the following overarching criteria:

Grant Award Range

Grants in the range of $10,000 to $100,000 will be available under this call for proposals. Projects should be submitted for one year of funding. Pending project evaluation, renewals may be available for further years of funding.

PLEASE NOTE: The FFCF has not set a date for a new 2017-18 round. The FFCF is planning to launch a new website and evaluation criteria later this year, and at this time is not accepting any applications or inquiries. New information and updates will be posted to the site later this summer. We are eager to launch the new site when it's ready. Please keep checking back and we appreciate your interest in the fund.
