Before submitting a formal application, please complete our Inquiry Form. Once submitted, your project or program is screened to ensure it meets all Foundation guidelines.

If your program is inconsistent with funding guidelines, you will be notified why the Foundation cannot accept a formal application.

If your project meets these guidelines, you will be notified that the Foundation is interested in reviewing a full grant application. You should then complete the Foundation’s Application Form (Rochester Area Common Application Form) and deliver your application packet—via US Mail or delivered in person—to the Foundation Office. At this time, the Foundation does not accept electronic submission of applications.

Incomplete applications cannot be accepted.
