Apply for a Grant
If you wish to apply for a grant, you must first complete a brief eligibility quiz. If you meet our basic eligibility requirements, you will then be able to register and submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) via our new grants application portal. The LOI must precede the submission of a full proposal. The van Ameringen Foundation staff will contact those organizations selected to submit a full proposal and schedule a site visit.
Decisions on grants are made by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, which meets two times each year to consider grant proposals—typically in June and November.

For the remainder of 2020, the van Ameringen Foundation is broadening its scope to include food relief and other COVID-19 emergency response work, in addition to our regular grantmaking.
For the November 2020 grants cycle, we are suspending the open LOI process to prioritize new grant proposals benefitting communities and neighborhoods hardest hit by the Coronavirus pandemic in New York City and Philadelphia.
