Inquiries may be made by sending a letter or email to the Foundation briefly describing a project or idea for which you would like to be considered for a grant OR by completing a “letter of inquiry” form on our online grants management system. Foundation staff will review your idea and will respond in a timely manner. If it is appropriate, the staff will schedule a discussion period or provide additional guidance about how to proceed.
Completing a Letter of Inquiry
The Letter of Inquiry is submitted through our online grants management program. If your agency has ever received a grant from the Weaver Foundation, it has an account in our system. In this case, contact Kevin Gray at 378-7910 or via email so he can create a User Name and Password for you. DO NOT create a new account.
