The Board of Directors meets three times a year in March, June and October.
Pre-qualification phase: Charities must email a Letter of Interest (LOI) and be invited to submit a grant application before doing so. Include a brief description of the organization, Charitable Registration Number, what you wish to apply for and its cost. If the LOI meets the Foundation’s guidelines, we will invite an application for one of the Board meetings. We ask organizations to wait two years from receiving a grant before applying again.
