We have two grant cycles annually. All proposals must meet the postmark deadline, and must be submitted as hard copy with the exception of Rapid Response Grants.
If you have been invited to submit a proposal for one of our regular cycles, please review and fill out the Grant Proposal Checklist, and include it with the materials that you are asked to submit. You can download our 2017 Grant Proposal Checklist here.
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. 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.
Note: If you are new to the Foundation, please include brief background information about your organization, including your organization’s mission, goals and recent accomplishments.
Please contact The Harder Foundation office if you have any questions about our Proposal Submission Guidelines.
