Applying for a Grant

U.S. Grant Applicants

Phase One

U.S. Grant applicants start by filling out our Online Preliminary Application.
Fall Grants Cycle Deadline: June 27, 2017 

Frequently Asked Questions for Phase 1:

  • When should I submit my Preliminary Application?

    The Preliminary Application can be submitted at any time. Application deadlines are established twice per year to correspond with meetings of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

  • I’ve already started a Preliminary Application. Where do I complete it?

    Log in to your Online Portal to complete your application.

  • I’m a fundraising consultant. Can I apply on behalf of a client?

    We welcome applications submitted by consultants, but we recommend that the online account be created under the email of the organization’s executive director or other key staff member.

  • How soon will I hear about my status?

    Correspondence is sent by email, so please add baderphilanthropies@bader.org to your approved senders list. All applications are reviewed as a group by our staff.
