The Graham Foundation accepts full proposals by invitation only. To be considered, applicants must first submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). After reviewing these and conducting additional research, we will invite select organizations to submit a full application.

Application Process

Step 1: Sign in to our online application portal. The first time you visit the portal, select ‘New Online Applicant’ below the ‘Email’ field, and create an account.

Step 2: After signing in, follow the instructions to complete and submit a Letter of Intent. 

Step 3: If invited, submit a full application. After reviewing letters of intent and conducting additional research, we will notify applicants about next steps. We do not accept unsolicited applications.
