2018 Fall Proposal Guidelines

We have two grant cycles annually.  Our Fall cycle deadline is November 1st.  All proposals must meet the deadline, and should be submitted electronically.

If you have been invited to submit a proposal, please review the Grant Proposal Checklist, and include all of the materials that you are asked to submit.  You can download our Grant Proposal Checklist here:

2018 Fall Grant Proposal Checklist

Our goal in reviewing your proposal is to understand what you aim to do to address the issues you’re concerned with, and how well your organization is positioned to make the changes you seek.  We hope your proposal will describe the problem; give us a picture of the solutions; identify who you’re trying to influence and who else you’re working with; be clear about what outcome you expect; and be realistic about what resources are needed for both staff and budget.

The checklist should help guide your proposal to make sure you include all the required information.  If you include everything we need, the review process will be more efficient.

Please submit your proposals via email to: info@theharderfoundation.org with the subject line: [Your Organization Name] 2018 Cycle 2 Grant Proposal.  The entire email with attachments should not exceed 20 MB; zip files are acceptable.  Our system cannot accept larger files.

Please contact the Harder Foundation office if you have any questions about our Proposal Submission Guidelines.
