Pre-Application Process


How to apply for funding?
All inquiries are accepted through an online process. Each organization will establish a profile and submit a Pre-Application Summary Form that describes its project or program, the problem being addressed, and desired outcomes. Prior to submitting a summary, organizations are encouraged to contact the Foundation to discuss the request.

When is the deadline to apply?
Pre-Application Summary Forms may be submitted on or before the 15th of any month.

What happens after a Pre-Application Summary Form is submitted online?
After a Pre-Application Summary Form has been submitted, Foundation staff review it to determine if the proposal meets the interests and guidelines established by The Henry Foundation’s Board of Directors and supports the mission of “focusing resources to change lives.” The organization’s name and IRS 501(c)(3) status are also verified.

Once the review is complete, a response is sent indicating whether or not a full proposal is requested. If so, instructions regarding the submission of a full grant application and a specified deadline are provided at that time.

If the proposal does not meet the guidelines or is not a good fit for the Foundation, the Pre-Application Summary Form will be declined.
