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-applications accepted during the following timeframes:
Spring Cycle January 1st through March 1st
Summer Cycle May 1st through July 1st
Fall Cycle August 1st through October 1st
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.

What happens after a completed application is submitted?
Once a completed application is submitted online to The Henry Foundation by the stated deadline, the organization’s name and contact information are verified by staff and the proposal is reviewed for completeness. If necessary, an applicant may be contacted regarding any clarifications or omissions and/or a site visit may be scheduled to further discuss the application for funding.
