About this funder:



Note: Grant-seekers that meet the criteria may submit an inquiry to mgfoundation [at] Please make sure to provide a working email, contact name, link to your organization’s website, and detailed comments about the project. The Foundation team reviews each of these inquires, and if your organization is selected to move on to the next stage of consideration, you will receive an invitation via email to submit a formal Letter of Intent. If a project is approved to move forward after review of the Letter of Intent, the organization will be asked to provide a detailed project proposal. A complete grant cycle (request – review – vetting - funding) can range from 9 to 12 months.
