The Foundation will send a grants contract to the grantee within two weeks of the relevant Foundation board meeting. The Foundation will work to disperse funds quickly and appropriately per the project schedule. A specific timeline for requesting and receiving grant funds is part of each grants contract. In most cases, grants in this initiative will be dispersed in a single payment.

Organizations who already have direct deposit arranged with the Foundation can typically receive funds within as little as two weeks of the Foundation’s receipt of the grant contract.

First time grantees or past grantees who have yet to establish a direct deposit agreement with the foundation require additional time (potentially up to three additional weeks) for paperwork to be processed.
