Out of Cycle Requests are shared with our fund advisors. This is a way for our fund advisors to learn more about the needs in our community beyond what they learn from the applications in our 4 grant cycles. These requests do not get reviewed by a community represented review team. Your request will be shared with our fund advisors in late May and late October. You will be notified only if a fund advisor chooses to make a grant to support (all or a portion of) your request. 

If your request does not fit with an existing grant cycle priority, consider submitting an Out of Cycle Request, which are shared with fund advisors twice annually in May and October.

Our fund advisors have a broad range of interests and we cannot predict whether or not your request will have a philanthropic match with any of our fund advisors' interests. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
